An Introduction to Environmental Chemistry and Pollution

 


Understanding Our Environment: An Introduction to Environmental Chemistry and Pollution (Third Edition) is edited by Roy M. Harrison, The University of Birmingham, UK and published by Royal Society of Chemistry, United Kingdom is a PDF book for free download.

This 3nd edition of Understanding Our Environment has been reworked and greatly updated, providing a modern introductory level text for students of pollution and environmental chemistry. 

The book describes the basic concepts in relation to the chemistry of the atmosphere, freshwaters, oceans and soils, as well as the ways in which pollutants behave in these media (exemplified by case studies based upon topical environmental problems). 

It also examines the transfer of pollutants between different environmental compartments, the monitoring of the environment, the ecological and human health effects of chemical pollution, economics and regulatory control. 

Again case studies are used throughout. This unique introductory text is essential reading for students on undergraduate and first year postgraduate courses dealing with pollution and environmental chemistry, as well as for scientists and engineers in industry, public service and consultancy who require a basic understanding of environmental processes.
