This book contains papers for a symposium entitled Hydrochemical, Chemical, and Biological Processes of Transformation and Transport of Contaminants in Aquatic Environments convened in Rostov-on-Don, May 1993, to evaluate research in this area and foster communication among scientists. Emphasis was placed on modelling the fate and transformation of contaminants associated with both field and laboratory studies and alternate data analysis techniques and water quality assessments.
This proceedings volume contains 48 papers which have been organized into four main sections: an Overview by R. Helmer focuses on global and national monitoring; a section entitled Fate and Transformation of Contaminants contains 13 papers primarily on pesticides, metals, and toxic organic contaminants; a section entitled Hydrochemical Modelling contains 18 papers on nutrients, organic contaminants, metals, and radioactive contaminants; and a section entitled Additional Techniques and Water Quality Assessments which contains 16 papers on mass-balance studies for various contaminants, sampling design, effects of changing land use, experimental ecosystems, remote sensing, and tracer techniques. The titles and authors of the papers are listed overleaf.
