About this book


This book provides basic geochemical data on principles, criteria, methods and current practices with regard to the treatment of contaminated systems and materials, like soils, surface waters and solid residues. Main emphasis is given to the investigation, control and recovery of ecosystems contaminated by metal mining and waste disposal operations. This book will help to close the gap existing between the use of geochemical methods and their successful implementation within environmental engineering measures. It is of interest to environmental engineers, responsible authorities in industry, as well as to scientists working at universities on environmental issues.
