Overview

Unique among the soil literature, this graduate-level text and reference treats the subjects related to the interdisciplinary fields of soil pollution and remediation. After a thorough and comprehensible introduction to the relevant fundamentals of the mineralogy, chemistry, and properties of soil, readers are well prepared to understand the biochemical aspects of soil remediation then presented. Mathematical modelling and soil monitoring are covered in a manner enabling readers from various disciplines to acquire the scientific literacy that makes further reading and research practical. The book’s holistic approach and narrative style are complemented by numerous and detailed illustrations. Not only will graduate students and instructors find it useful for teaching and study, but Soil Pollution also offers professionals from the earth, environmental, and agricultural sciences the integrated overview of previously separately treated materials they may have been seeking.
