Biogeodynamics of pollutants in soils and sediments : risk assessment of delayed and non-linear responses.
In the USA, Western and Central Europe, many largescale polluted sites are too large to be cleaned up economically with available technologies.
Moreover, new sites are also being created nwith little concern for environmental protection.
A long-term view is essential so the retention of contaminants is not diminished and we understand the potential for largescale contaminant mobilization at these sites triggered by changing environmental conditions.
The soil-sediment system as a dynamic entity can be described as biogeodynamics.
This book provides information for predicting long-term changes and making risk assessments and describes the approach of geochemical engineering to handling large-scale polluted sites. (R. A.).
