Presents a comprehensive introduction to environmental modelling of mass and momentum transport processes. By examining the underlying transport processes that determine the fate of contaminants in the three main environmental media - soil, water and air - this text unifies the students' understanding of environmental phenomena. It provides an understanding of existing processes by stressing the common features underlying pollutant transport and pollution control processes. The book adopts a similar approach to the integrated heat, mass and momentum courses of chemical and mechanical engineering and forms the basis of new and improved models and designs in environmental envineering. Examples are used, along with case studies and exercises with an environmental focus.
