Название: Environmental Forensics (Issues in Environmental Science and Technology)
Авторы: Hester R., Harrison R.
This exciting book offers an overview of environmental forensics and related topics. It contains authoritative articles by a number of the leading practitioners across the globe in the field and covers some of the main techniques and areas to which environmental forensics are being applied. The content is comprehensive and describes a number of the key areas within environmental forensics. Topics covered by the authors include: (1) Source identification issues, (2) Microbial techniques, (3) Metal contamination and methods of assigning liability, (4) The use of isotopes to determine sources and their applications, (5) Molecular biological methods, (6) Hydrocarbon fingerprinting techniques, (7) Oil chemistry and key compound ID, (8) The emerging role of environmental forensics in groundwater pollution. Additionally, the volume considers specific pollutants and long-lived pollutants of groundwater such as halocarbons which have presented particular problems and which are described in some depth, as well as the way in which chemical degradation processes can lead to compositional changes which provide valuable information.
