Описание: This book introduces a comprehensive overview on the fundamentals of environmental sampling and analysis for students in environmental science and engineering as well as environmental professionals in sampling and analytical work. This book presents a know why rather than a know how strategy. It details fundamentals of sampling, selection of standard methods, chemical and instrumental principles, and method applications to particular contaminants. The book gives an integrated introduction to sampling and analysis essential to quality environmental data. For example, contrary to other books that introduce a specific area of sampling and analysis, this text provides a balanced mix of field sampling and laboratory analysis, essential knowledge in chemistry, statistics, hydrology, wet chemical methods for conventional chemicals as well as various modern instrumental techniques for contaminants of emerging concerns.
