Overview

The IUPAC Series on Analytical and Physical Chemistry of Environmental Systems provides the scientific community with a critical evaluation of the state of the art on physicochemical structures and reactions in environmental systems, as well as on the analytical techniques required to study and monitor these systems. The series is aimed at promoting rigorous analysis and understanding of physicochemical functioning of environmental systems. In Situ Monitoring of Aquatic Systems Chemical Analysis and Speciation Edited by Jacques Buffle University of Geneva, Switzerland George Horvai Technical University of Budapest, Hungary In order to control the impact of human activity on our environment it is necessary to develop efficient multi-parameter monitoring systems in addition to understanding the underlying environmental processes. To carry out the huge numbers of analyses necessary it is not feasible to employ classical sample collection and analysis techniques. Robust sensors and instruments for on-site and automatic measurements are therefore being developed. A major goal of this book is to evaluate the developments over the last 10-20 years which will form the basis of future sophisticated in situ monitoring systems. The emphasis is on micro-analytical monitoring techniques and microtechnology. This book also includes
* critical discussion of the state of the art of existing techniques and devices,
* what can be expected in terms of performance and
* possible improvements in the future.
In Situ Monitoring of Aquatic Systems will thus be invaluable to both researchers interested in the development of environmental monitoring systems and laboratories in charge of water quality assessment by providing them with a critical evaluation of existing and possible future options. Indeed it will be a valuable reference book for any researcher interested in developing new types of sensors for in situ monitoring.
