Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Multimedia Environmental Models: The Fugacity Approach takes a broad approach of viewing chemical behavior in the total biosphere of connected biotic and abiotic compartments. Chemicals are subject to the laws of concentration of mass, or the mass balance. These constraints provide the opportunity to establish the quantitative expressions of chemical fate that society now demands.

This book develops, describes, and illustrates a framework and procedures for calculating the behavior of chemicals in the environment. It employs both the conventional procedures, which are based on manipulations of concentrations, and procedures using the concepts of activity and fugacity to characterize equilibrium between environmental phases such as air, water, and soil. Organic chemicals are emphasized because they are more easily generalized when assessing environmental behavior.

Chemical fate professionals in government, industry, and private consulting, as well as students, will find that the models and other information within this book are extremely useful in the course of their work and studies.


Includes bibliographical references (p. 235-251) and index.
