This outstanding volume enables researchers to develop robust sensors and instruments for automatic 'on site' measurement of water quality. The need for an efficient multi-parameter monitoring system is ever-increasing, given that human activity is impacting so greatly on ecosystems and the increased need to develop our understanding of the underlying environmental processes.

Edited by two renowned experts, this book evaluates 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.

* Critically discusses the state of the art of existing techniques and devices
* Overviews what can be expected in terms of performance
* Outlines possible improvements in the future
This book will 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.

Editorial Reviews

For those occasions when taking a body of water<-->a bay, for example, or major river system<-->into the laboratory to test it proves inconvenient, environmental scientists explain methods for monitoring major, minor and trace components continuously and in real time, simultaneously at a large number of locations in the ecosystem, and at various depths in the water columns or ground water. The field is just emerging, so the more or less sophisticate electrodes, optodes, sensors, and analytical systems for measurements in water and sediments is only beginning, and the studies here are in part designed to help shape that development as it matures.
