About the book
The search for more modern models and techniques to monitor water quality and improve water treatment techniques is a challenging mission for scientists in the field. This book will present trends and advances in the area of water quality.
The areas that this book should integrate are: pollution by metals in water, pollution by hydrocarbons in water, pollution by pesticides in water, pollution by emerging micro-pollutants in water, pollution by microorganisms in water, advances in analytical chemistry in assessing water quality, advances in microbiology in water quality, sediment-water interaction, particulate material and water interaction, effluent water, water biomonitoring, statistical treatment of water quality data, human water supply, wastewater treatment plants, bioremediation, physical-chemical treatments, groundwater pollution, urban river pollution, water and circular economy.
With the themes presented, this book aims to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of the current state of the art in water quality, presenting an adequate and viable path to follow.
