Review:

This is a book that clearly explaines, in simple terms, the chemical aspects of environmental problems, created by humans, for students that only possess introductory chemistry as background.

This book was designed specifically for environmental chemistry courses at the intermediate level. With a problem-solving approach, the book covers a wide range of environmental issues, encouraging students to examine and quantify the relationship between the environment and chemistry. The most accessible, straightforward and contemporary presentation is given of environmental issues and their solutions provided by chemists.
