Combining earth technological know-how, subsurface hydrology and environmental geochemistry, this booklet offers a complete history for these drawn to the safety and sustainable administration of the subsurface surroundings. The reader is brought to the chemistry of contaminants, which typically disturb the average equilibrium within the subsurface because of human task. One concentration of the booklet is on contaminant reactions in soil ideas. Discussions on case reports are provided.
