About this item

Spellman helps environmental engineers, scientists, managers, and students to understand contaminated sediments in freshwater systems better. He describes scientifically sound methods for assessing sediment quality to determine whether chemical or biological concentrations in the sediments are sufficient to cause adverse effects on either aquatic organisms or organisms higher in the food chain, including humans. In sections on sediment fundamentals, sediment damage, and sediment sampling, he considers such topics as surface water sediments, the transport of sediment by water, physical sediment damage, chemically contaminated sediments, and collecting porewater. He presents an extended case study of Gold King Mine Spill in 2015. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
