Pollutant Fate and Transport in the Subsurface


    About the Book: Environmental modelling has enjoyed a long tradition, but there is a defined need to continually address both the power and the limitations of such models, as well as their quantitative assessment. This book showcases modern environmental modelling methods, the basic theory behind them and their incorporation into complex environmental investigations. It highlights advanced computing technologies and how they have led to unprecedented and adaptive modelling, simulation and decision-support tools to study complex environmental systems, and how they can be applied to current environmental concerns. This volume is essential reading for researchers in academia, industry and government-related bodies who have a vested interest in all aspects of environmental modelling. Features •A range of modern environmental modelling techniques are described by experts from around the world, including the USA, Canada, Australia, Europe and Thailand. •Many examples from air, water, soil/sediment and biological matrices are covered in detail throughout the book. •Key chapters are included on modelling uncertainty and sensitivity analysis. •A selection of figures are provided in full colour to enable greater comprehension of the topics discussed.
