Overview

All the techniques you need in a single source! Environmental Monitoring Handbook helps you with the most pervasive activity in environmental science --taking and analyzing environmental samples from water, air or land.

This book explains how to implement the various monitoring techniques for air, water, and soil.

Environmental Monitoring Handbook shows you how to get professional answers with the best testing and analysis methods in use today. The Handbook covers such topics as: Data Sampling and Analysis, Statistics, Sampling design, Scale reduction (PCA) Monitoring Program Design and Logistics, Chemical Monitoring, In-situ Measurements, Trace metals, Nutrients, Non Metal Species, Organic Matter, Organic Carbon, Biological Monitoring, and Ecotoxicological Monitoring.

Frank R. Burden is an associate professor in the School of Chemistry at Monash University and a member of the Water Studied Centre and the Australian Cooperative Research Centre for Fresh Water Ecology. He has a wide variety of interests from environmental monitoring, heavy metal pollution and atmospheric chemistry through quantum chemistry and the quantitative structure-activity relationship of medical drugs and toxic compounds. His current area of activity is in data analysis, chemometrics and modeling

Ulrich Forstner is a professor of Environmental Science and Engineering at the University of Technology of Hamburg-Harbuurg, Germany, since 1982. He served previously as a lecturer and scientist at the Institute of Sediment Research, University of Heidelberg. His current focus is on geochemical technologies for large-volume solid waste materials, including minewastes, incineration residues, dredged sediments, and contaminated soil. He is also Vice-Chairman of the Water Chemistry Association of the German Chemical Society and board member of 12 scientific and advisory groups.

Ian D. McKelvie is an associate professor in the School of Chemistry at Monash University, where he teaches Environmental and Analytical Chemistry. He is associated with the Water Studies Centre at Monash University and the Australian Cooperative Research Centre for Fresh Water Ecology, and his research interests focus on water quality assessment, the biochemical cycling of phosphorus in freshwater and estuarine systems, and the development of automated water quality measurement techniques based on Flow Injection Analysis.

Alex Guenther is a staff scientist and leader of the biosphere-atmosphere interactions group in the Atmospheric Chemistry Division of the National Center for Atmospheric Research. He has led laboratory, field, and numerous investigations of trace gas fluxes in North America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and South America.
