Issues in Environmental Science and Technology
This series was devised to tackle important environmental topics in response to the rapid growth of interest in this area and the need for authoritative reviews of such topics.
Issues are published twice a year with each volume addressing a specific theme or topic.

About the series
Written by world experts in their specialised fields, the series presents a multidisciplinary approach to pollution and environmental science and, in addition to covering the chemistry of environmental processes focuses on broader issues: notably economic, legal and political considerations. It is invaluable for scientists and engineers in industry, public service, consultancy and academic institutions, who wish to keep up-to-date on topical subjects in this emotive field. It is also essential reading for students taking specialised courses in environmental chemistry and provides supplementary reference material for general science courses.
The Editors commission review articles from experts in the topics covered by each issue. Authors are drawn from industry, as well as public service and academic organisations. Offers of articles are welcomed and in such cases potential authors should submit in the first instance, a synopsis outlining the intended contents and coverage of their article.
