While new developments in genomics, nanotechnology, sampling, and modelling permit increasingly revealing investigation into flocculation structure and processes, there is still a fundamental lack of knowledge related to many aspects of this phenomenon. Presented by a prominent team of international experts, this text takes a unique perspective and melds together the natural and engineering fields of science as they relate to this central phenomenon. In doing so, the authors present the full range of sampling, handling, analytical, and interpretive options for operational management of natural or engineered system, providing comprehensive coverage that meets the needs of researchers, practitioners and students.

This outstanding new book examines the planning, design, construction, and operation of wetlands used for water quality treatment. Treatment Wetlands is the first comprehensive book to systematically describe all aspects of this new technology. Topics include all major wetland configurations, wastewater sources, and combinations of climatic conditions. This complete reference contains detailed information on wetland ecology, wetland water quality, selection of appropriate technology, design for consistent performance, construction guidance, and operational control through effective monitoring. Design approaches that can be tailored to specific wetland treatment projects are also included. Rule-of-thumb methods, regression-based empirical design approaches, and rational methods are explained facilitating wetland design based on multi-parameter input conditions.

Written for safety and loss-control, environmental, and quality managers, this is the first comprehensive, integrated guide to developing a complete environmental risk analysis for regulated substances and processes. Unlike other books, Introduction to Risk Analysis looks at risk from a regulatory perspective, allowing both professionals in regulatory agencies concerned with risk_including OSHA, EPA, USDA, DOT, FDA, and state environmental agencies_and professionals in any agency-regulated industry to understand and implement the methods required for proper risk assessment. The authors examine risk and the structure of analysis. Emphasizing the predictive nature of risk, they discuss the quantitative nature of risk and explore quantitative-analysis topics, including data graphing, logarithmic thinking, risk estimating, and curve fitting. Chapters include discussions on functions, models, and uncertainties; the regulatory process; risk assessment; exposure; dosimetry; epidemiology; toxicology; risk characterization; comparative risk assessment; ecological risk assessment; risk management; and risk communication. Six in-depth case studies, an annotated bibliography, and more than 50 figures are also included.

A unique approach to the challenges of complex environmentalsystems Environmental Transport Processes, Second Edition providesmuch-needed guidance on mass transfer principles in environmentalengineering. It focuses on working with uncontrolled conditionsinvolving biological and physical systems, offering examples fromdiverse fields, including mass transport, kinetics, wastewatertreatment, and unit processes. This new edition is fully revised and updated, incorporatingmodern approaches and practice problems at the end of chapters,making the Second Edition more concise, accessible, and easy touse. The book discusses the fundamentals of transport processesoccurring in natural environments, with special emphasis on workingat the biological–physical interface. It considers transportand kinetics in terms of systems that involve microorganisms, alongwith in-depth coverage of particles, size spectra, and calculationsfor particles that can be considered either spheres or fractals.The book's treatment of particles as fractals is especially uniqueand the Second Edition includes a new section on exoelectrogenicbiofilms. It also addresses dispersion in natural and engineeredsystems unlike any other book on the subject. Readers will learn to tackle with confidence complexenvironmental systems and make transport calculations inheterogeneous environments with mixtures of chemicals.

As nanotechnology enters everyday life, engineered nanoparticles (ENP) will find their way into nature, including surface and groundwater. Here, distinguished experts of water chemistry present dedicated methods for the analysis of nanoparticles in the aquatic environment, their distribution and fate. This includes the influence of complex matrices such as wastewater, brown water with natural organic matter (NOM), and high salt concentrations as well as available and future standardized methods. The background of geogenic, natural nanoparticles is considered in a discussion of known environmental effects, including strategies to test for potential effects on human and environmental health.

Microbiology of Drinking Water Production andDistribution addresses the public health aspects of drinkingwater treatment and distribution. It explains the different watertreatment processes, such as pretreatment, coagulation,flocculation, sedimentation, filtration, disinfection, and theirimpacts on waterborne microbial pathogens and parasites. Drinking water quality may be degraded in water distributionsystems—microorganisms form biofilms within distributionsystems that allow them to flourish. Various methodologies havebeen proposed to assess the bacterial growth potential in waterdistribution systems. Microbiology of Drinking Water Production and Distributionalso places drinking water quality and public health issues incontext; it addresses the effect of bioterrorism on drinking watersafety, particularly safeguards that are in place to protectconsumers against the microbial agents involved. In addition, thetext delves into research on drinking water quality in developingcountries and the low-cost treatment technologies that could savelives. The text also examines the microbiological water quality ofbottled water, often misunderstood by the public at large.
