Geochemistry of Soil Radionuclides (S S S a Special Publication) by Peng-Chu Zhang [Repost]

Geochemistry of Soil Radionuclides (S S S a Special Publication) by Peng-Chu Zhang
Soil Science Society of America | January 1, 2002 | English | ISBN: 0891188401 | 263 pages | PDF | 14 MB

Recurring concerns about the environmental fate and potential health impacts of radionuclides continue to focus interest on understanding the mechanisms controlling their transport in soils and their biological availability. This work builds on both basic science and empirical engineering studies to provide a mechanistic approach to facilitate risk assessment and cost-effective remediation procedures.
Heavy Metal Contamination of Water and Soil: Analysis, Assessment, and Remediation Strategies

Heavy Metal Contamination of Water and Soil: Analysis, Assessment, and Remediation Strategies by Elham Asrari
English | 2014 | ISBN: 177188004X , 1466590076 | 386 pages | PDF | 11 MB

Although adverse health effects of heavy metals have been known for a long time, exposure to heavy metals continues and is even increasing in some areas. Remediating heavy metal contaminated soils and water is necessary to reduce the associated health and ecological risks, make the land resource available for agricultural production, enhance food security, and scale down land tenure problems.

Geochemistry of Soil Radionuclides by Peng-Chu Zhang
Publisher: Soil Science Society of America (January 1, 2002) | ISBN: 0891188401 | Pages: 252 | PDF | 14.8 MB

Recurring concerns about the environmental fate and potential health impacts of radionuclides continue to focus interest on understanding the mechanisms controlling their transport in soils and their biological availability. This work builds on both basic science and empirical engineering studies to provide a mechanistic approach to facilitate risk assessment and cost-effective remediation procedures. The authors highlight theories and technologies developed in understanding the fate of radionuclides in soils, groundwater and in potential nuclear waste repositories.
