Agriculture, Hydrology, and Water QualityeBook - 2002
"This book is a collection of reviews on the global problems of diffuse water pollution from agriculture, which affects the water quality of rivers, lakes, reservoirs and the oceans. It has been broken down into three parts. The first considers potential sources of water pollution, and includes chapters on phosphorus, nitrogen, manure and heavy metals, as well as pathogens and persistent organic pollutants. Section 2 covers the movement and transport of water pollution. The final part examines impacts and provides case studies of water quality from around the world." "The book reflects the opinions of the world's experts in these subjects, and is suitable as a reference book for researchers and advanced level students in the areas of soil science, environmental science, hydrology and pollution studies."--Jacket.
