Chemodynamics Environmental Movement of Chemicals in Air, Water, and Soil Louis J. Thibodeaux This advanced text covers the general topic of movement within and the exchange of man-made chemicals between the three phases of the environment-air, soil, and water. The topic of chemodynamics in the exterior environment is organized and developed to provide students with a unified approach. The book presents and evaluates existing methods-commonly referred to as models-for studying the movement of substances from the site of entry into the environment to the various geospheres for the purpose of estimating exposure along the way. Emphasis is on the qualitative descriptions of simple models and mechanisms. 1979 520 pp. The Chemistry of Our Environment Ralph A. Horne A text for a general all-university environmental course that describes the major environmental domains-exosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere, and biosphere-and their interacting chemical relationships. Discusses chemical alteration and pollution of the environment as well as "internal pollution" caused by drugs and food additives. Treats each topic within the chemical context of the total environment, comparing and weighing the relative significance of anthropogenic and "natural" pollutant sources. 1978 869 pp. Fate of Pollutants in the Air and Water Environments Part 1: Mechanism of Interaction Between Environments and Mathematical Modeling and the Physical Fate of Pollutants Part 2: Chemical and Biological Fate of Pollutants in the Environment Edited by I.H. Suffet Drawn from papers presented in part at the symposium on "Fate of Pollutants in the Air and Water Environments" at the 165th National American Chemical Society Meeting, the Environmental Chemistry Division, held in April 1975. Part 1 deals with the mechanisms of interaction between environments, including the physical and physiochemical fate of pollutants in the air and water, trace constituents in the atmosphere, and the transfer of organic pollutants between air and water, solid and water, and air and solid. Part 2 examines the chemical and biological influences to which compounds are subjected in order to describe their impact on the environment. Chemical influences including the physiochemical reactions of compounds in the environment encompass adsorption, coagulation, equilibrium, etc. Biological influences include the physiochemical interactions or metabolic changes associated with receptor organisms. Physical influences include the parameters that transport or disperse chemicals throughout the lithosphere, hydrosphere, and atmosphere. Part 1:1977 484 pp. Part 2:1977 442 pp.
