    Kyle Boelte: IMG Selfies, Memoir, and the World Beyond the Self



    When I was a teenager in Colorado during the late '90s, I liked to climb 14ers — 14,000-foot mountains. I'd often hike with friends, and at... Continue »

Publisher Comments:

Global awareness of the importance of monitoring and protecting our environment has grown considerably over the last ten years. Environmental concerns are now an integral part of today's legislation, product design and development, waste minimization and disposal. As well as background monitoring of the environment, scientists are involved in monitoring liquid and gaseous discharges and surveying contaminated land and landfill sites - very topical issues due to concern over waste dumping and potential problems with reuse of old industrial sites.

As well as covering long-established methods, this book includes the breadth of new developments which have taken place in the field of environmental analysis. New techniques have emerged which have now become acceptable as alternatives to more long-standing methods. There is also more use of automated techniques. Quality assurance and quality control aspects have become increasingly important for the environmental analyst with a growing emphasis on accurate quantification. The techniques discussed develop in complexity from simple volumetric measurements for water quality to the special problems of ultra-trace analysis. As well as covering all of the laboratory techniques used in extraction and analysis of samples, attention is also given to in situ monitoring and sampling strategies.

Key features include the following:

* Up-to-date information on now widely used analytical techniques such as ICP-MS, ICP-OES, and PM10 sampling.

* Written in the AnTS Series style, it is ideal for use as a self-study aid or as the basis of a taught course.

* Includes a comprehensive bibliography to guide the reader to more specialized texts and sources for the various standard methods.

Introduction to Environmental Analysis will be invaluable to students on environmental science and analytical chemistry courses, as well as laboratory technicians, biologists and analytical chemists involved in environmental monitoring.

Book News Annotation:

Written for students in environmental science and chemistry courses, as well as laboratory technicians, this book covers established and innovative methods in the field of environmental analysis. Emphasizing accurate quantification, it describes laboratory techniques, in situ monitoring, and sample strategies. Quality assurance and quality control aspects receive particular attention. Chapters address the transport of pollutants in the environment, water analysis, the analysis of land and solids, atmospheric analysis, and ultra-trace analysis.
