Determination of Metals in Natural and Treated Waters draws together all the available literature and presents in a systematic fashion the latest analytical techniques for detecting metals in non-saline and saline natural and treated water. Broad outlines of different methods and their applicability in certain situations are given allowing the chemist to choose appropriate test methods.
This volume is an essential reference for environmental analytical chemists, toxicologists and the medical community in the water, agrochemistry, fisheries and waste management industries and the public sector, including enforcement and public health.

It is impressive to see a book of almost 1200 pages from a single author but the topic represents probably the most broadly studies area of environmental analysis until now and a comprehensive coverage leads to such a heavyweight Hendrik Emons - The Royal Society of Chemistry
