Back cover copy
As well as covering long-established methods, this book includes the breadth of new developments which have taken place in the field of environmental analysis. New techniques have emerged which have now become acceptable as alternatives to more long-standing methods. There is also more use of automated techniques. Quality assurance and quality control aspects have become increasingly important for the environmental analyst with a growing emphasis on accurate quantification. The techniques discussed develop in complexity from simple volumetric measurements for water quality to the special problems of ultra-trace analysis. As well as covering all of the laboratory techniques used in extraction and analysis of samples, attention is also given to in situ monitoring and sampling strategies.
Key features include the following:
* Up-to-date information on now widely used analytical techniques such as ICP-MS, ICP-OES, and PM10 sampling.
* Written in the AnTS Series style, it is ideal for use as a self-study aid or as the basis of a taught course.
* Includes a comprehensive bibliography to guide the reader to more specialized texts and sources for the various standard methods.
Introduction to Environmental Analysis will be invaluable to students on environmental science and analytical chemistry courses, as well as laboratory technicians, biologists and analytical chemists involved in environmental monitoring.
