Laboratory Experiments in Environmental Chemistry

This lab manual provides an interdisciplinary collection of 23 extensively tested environmental chemistry experiments — with extensive introductory background material for each experiment. It covers a broad range of methods and provides detailed instructions on calculation of results. Experiments involve, for example: inorganic and organic profile of sediment and soil cores; the pH of environmental waters and buffer capacity; alkalinity of streams and lakes; trace levels of ions in natural waters; conductivity of natural waters; cloride ion in natural waters; colorimetry and absorption spectra; metals in natural waters and in sediments; atomic absorption spectrometry; the chemical oxygen demand of natural waters and wastewaters; the fluorimetric determination of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons; environmental hydrocarbons; air sampling-particulates in urban air; carbon dioxide in the atmosphere; acid rain; decomposition of pollutants with an application to plasticizers, and detergents. For chemists and technicians with environmental agencies.
