Twenty years ago, researchers wishing to identify contaminated areas in aquatic environments generally took water samples, and analysed them badly (as we have since discovered) for a few "pollutants" which were of topical note at the time (and which could be quantified by the methods then available). Today, the use of aquatic organisms as biomonitors in preference to water analysis has become commonplace, and many national and interna tional programmes exist around the world involving such studies. We believe that this trend will continue, and have complete faith in the methodology (when it is employed correctly). We hope that the following text assists in some part in attaining this goal, such that the quality of our most basic global resource -water - is adequately protected in the future. DAVE PHILLIPS, PHIL RAINBOW England, March 1992 vii Acknowledgements Our thanks for contributions to this book are due to several individuals and groups, for varying reasons. Firstly, a co-authored book is always a triumph, and we trust that the following text is an acceptable compromise of the views of two individual authors, on a complex and developing topic. Secondly, many of the ideas herein have crystallised over the last two decades as the field has grown, and we are individually and collectively grateful to a number of researchers for their insight and assistance.

This extensive handbook presents up-to-date coverage of significant developments in estuarine and marine pollution. Multidisciplinary in approach, Practical Handbook of Estuarine and Marine Pollution is an essential resource for anyone involved in the study or management of coastal and marine pollution problems. The book examines in detail anthropogenic effects on estuarine and marine ecosystems from local, regional, and global perspectives. A truly international collection of data is presented in an organized framework on a wide range of subject areas, including eutrophication, organic loading, oil pollution, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, halogenated hydrocarbons, trace metals, radioactive waste, dredging and dredged-spoil disposal, and effects of electric generating stations. Whether you are a student, a scientist, a policy maker, or an administrator, you no longer need to spend countless hours rounding up information and data - Practical Handbook of Estuarine and Marine Pollution has already done it for you.

There is overwhelming evidence that marine resources are being overexploited throughout the world. In an effort to conserve the natural resources of the world’s oceans, new methods, technologies, and practices in fishery and marine resource management must be implemented. Progressive Engineering Practices in Marine Resource Management combines scientific, ecological, and engineering approaches involved in the sustainable management of natural resources. Featuring coverage on key topics relating to environmental management, maritime spatial planning, sustainable fisheries, and waste water treatment, this publication is a critical reference source for fishery associations, scientists, environmental management authorities, and water management directorates interested in emerging technologies and innovative resource management techniques.

Bioavailability refers to the extent to which humans and ecological receptors are exposed to contaminants in soil or sediment. The concept of bioavailability has recently piqued the interest of the hazardous waste industry as an important consideration in deciding how much waste to clean up. The rationale is that if contaminants in soil and sediment are not bioavailable, then more contaminant mass can be left in place without creating additional risk. A new NRC report notes that the potential for the consideration of bioavailability to influence decision-making is greatest where certain chemical, environmental, and regulatory factors align. The current use of bioavailability in risk assessment and hazardous waste cleanup regulations is demystified, and acceptable tools and models for bioavailability assessment are discussed and ranked according to seven criteria. Finally, the intimate link between bioavailability and bioremediation is explored. The report concludes with suggestions for moving bioavailability forward in the regulatory arena for both soil and sediment cleanup.

Chromatographic Analysis of the Environment, Third Edition is a detailed handbook on different chromatographic analysis techniques and chromatographic data for compounds found in air, water, soil, and sludge. Taking on a new perspective from previous editions, this third edition discusses the parameters of each environmental compartment in a consistent format that highlights preparation techniques, chromatographic separation methods, and detection methods. Most of the data are compiled in tables and figures to elucidate the text as needed. Separate chapters approach specific aspects of sampling methods especially designed for environmental purposes, quantification of environmental analytes in difficult matrices, and data handling. The second part of the book focuses on the analysis of hazardous chemicals in the environment, including volatile organic carbons (VOCs), polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs). In addition, the authors feature information on compounds such as phosphates, organic acids, halogenated VOCs, amines, and n-ntirosamines, isocyanates, phthalate esters, and humic substances. Presenting important theoretical and practical aspects from sample collection to laboratory analysis, Chromatographic Analysis of the Environment, Third Edition is a unique resource of chromatographic techniques, data, and references that are useful to all scientists involved in the analysis of environmental compounds.
