    This manual offers a very good basis not only for experts of water chemistry

    This manual in English language offers a very good basis not only for experts of water chemistry, water and waste water treatment and environmental protection but also for teachers and students of technical directions at colleges as well as at universities. 225 pages contain all factors playing an important role for examination of water, waste water and soil. 9 chapters include general remarks to laboratory safety (also regarding to waste treatment) and quality control. Furthermore requirements for analytical methods of the different water types and soil are mentioned. Further chapters deal with the preparation and technique of the sampling as well as their application in practice. Chapter 'Laboratory Measurements' describes all important methods in detail. So this book is a perfect handbook for the target group, even without using the attached extensive reference list. In chapter 7 a huge variety of tables containing especially German legal and technical regulations is an clearly help for interpretation of received results. This book can be highly recommended as a handbook for everybody dealing with water, waste water and soil treatment. R. Bäßler
