Published by Wiley
Provides an extensive overview of all the most important aspects of lake monitoring studies describing methods of water sampling, analytical determination and data interpretation.

Now that all EC countries must receive the EC Directive on Water Quality, there is a greater need to improve the quality of measurements, both in chemical and biological fields and this book describes the best practices in measuring water, quality, standard procedures and quality assurance in relation to current legislation and guidelines.

The book provides coverage of:

? Abiotic processes and harmful substances in lakes

? Biocoenosis in evaluating the ecological status of lakes

? New lake monitoring techniques

? Quality assessment

? Managing of results

The book also addresses the most important problems currently impacting lake resources:

? Eutrophication

? Water acidification and its impact on biodiversity

? The presence of endocrine disrupters

? The bioaccumulation of mercury in the food chain

This is an essential guide to the subject for postgraduate students in environmental science and analytical chemistry, laboratories involved in water analysis, industrial companies producing effluent and regional environmental agencies.

'Hydrological and Limnological Aspects of Lake Monitoring' is the first book in the Water Quality Measurement Series, which provides a comprehensive coverage of the analytical techniques used for the measurement of substances in water, from sampling through to laboratory analysis. The series aims to offer practical answers to specific issues related to measurements of the water cycle quality, using a scientifically sound approach.
