Here is an up-to-date presentation of metal speciation in soils, sediments, and water by specialists in analytical chemistry, environmental engineering, oceanography, nutrition, and soil chemistry. fate and effects-measurements-and modeling-are the major themes in this book, with overviews and examples of the significance of metal speciation to solving environmental problems, and recommendations for additional research areas. This new reference discusses separation methods, extraction techniques; bioavailability as related to humans, plants, and aquatic organisms; applications showing importance of speciation in groundwater; industrial waste treatment systems, marines and lakes, solid-solution interface; fate of organic pollutants; nature of surfaces; binding of metals to oxides and sediments (dissolved and particulate matter); interpretations of reactions in multi-ligand systems.
