Completely revised and updated, this book continues to provide simple techniques for calculating how chemicals behave in the environment, where they accumulate, how long they persist, and how this leads to human exposure. It develops, describes, and illustrates the framework and procedures for calculating the behavior of chemicals in our multimedia environment of air, water, soil, and sediments, as well as the diversity of biota that reside in these media. The Second Edition will include a how-to modeling section and a problems and solutions section. In addition, the models will be Web based.
