Item description for Environmental Geochemistry of Potentially Toxic Metals by Frederic R. Siegel...
The book focuses on heavy metals that have damaged the ecosystem Earth and its life forms. It characterizes natural and anthropogenic sources of pollutants, identifies physical, chemical and biological conditions that affect their ecosystem mobility. The book describes the pathways by which potentially toxic metals can access and concentrate to toxic levels in organisms. The text reviews the different environmental assessment, monitoring samples and analytical techniques used to determine how sample types bond the metals and hence affect their bioavailibility and bioaccumulation. Consideration is given to existing remediation methodologies and those being researched. Finally, the book emphasizes how pre-planning during project studies can result in the incorporation of technologies that will prevent or at least greatly alleviate the release of toxic metals to our living environment.

Very Good Oct 23, 2007
If what are you looking for is a good guide to understand how and why some toxic elements are released in the environment (especially in waters), this is a book that you must have. Each toxic metals (even some quite unusual) are well described in this book.
