A trio of US professors of environmental engineering focus on contaminant behavior in the triad of environmental media: air, water, and soil/subsurface systems. Texts for students in this field typically treat each media separately. This integrated approach not only facilitates single semester coverage, but also is more real world-oriented given the realities of ecological and human health risk assessment, hazardous waste management, and chemical regulations. The authors introduce transport basics, and computational methods for the development of pollutant transport and fate models. Ramaswami is at the U. of Colorado, Denver.
