Fate and Transport provides the equations and background information you need to predict the fate and transport of chemicals in air, water, soil, flora, and fauna, and to prevent your exposure to toxic chemicals. Featuring 22 new mathematical calculations for predicting the fate and transport of 100 non-pesticide organic compounds, this Third Edition provides you with easy-to-read explanations of how chemicals travel through the environmental compartments, how they break down, and how key physical and chemical properties of chemicals (including water solubility, volatility, and soil sorbtion or adsorption) affect fate and transport. The book also addresses methods for predicting pesticide and fish hazards, offer complete samples of calculations and exposure analyses, includes date for 203 commonly encountered chemical substances, and explains hazard prediction based on chemical structure.
