Editorial Reviews


"Scientists, analysts and policy developers will find the book attractive for their specific needs." (Chemistry Journals, 11 April 2011)


From the Back Cover

Developments in legislation to protect the aquatic environment, including surface waters, ground water, the coastal zone, and wetlands, make effective monitoring of water quality essential. Thus the development and validation of cost-effective technologies and methodologies that can be adopted widely for routine monitoring are needed. As well as the current methods used, the range of promising tools under development have the potential to be included in the ‘toolboxes’ of those charged with managing water quality.

This volume sets out to

  • examine the range of technologies and methodologies, their properties and their applicability and potential contribution in monitoring programmes. 
  • illustrate by example, the utility of the monitoring tools for laboratory and field applications.
  • bring together a wide range of monitoring tools —both those available, and some under development
  • provide an assessment of the potential for underpinning environmental management and legislation.
