A result of important bilateral scientific agreements between the U.S. and the Soviet Union on the fate of chemicals and pesticides in the environment. Written by experts in both countries, it familiarizes the reader with recent state-of-the-art research being conducted in the areas of agricultural management and water pollution control. A number of models are provided to give the reader a concise grasp of exposure and ecological risk assessments involving these pollutants. Focuses on the necessity to improve our deteriorating standards of public health, environmental science and technology with a total systems approach through the pooled talents of scientists and engineers.

Editorial Reviews

The product of a US-Soviet symposium held under the auspices of the US EPA in Iowa City, November 1987. The proceedings have been edited to comprise a current textbook in environmental science and engineering that can be used by individual researchers and practitioners in the field of agricultural management and water pollution. In between the introduction and the postscript, 20 papers address topics in deposition and transport, physical-chemical processes, microbial transformations, and modeling of pesticides and chemicals.
