This book offers an in-depth look at the chemical and biological cycling of nutrients, trace elements, and toxic organic compounds in wetland soils and water columns as related to water quality, carbon sequestration, and greenhouse gases. It details the electrochemistry, biochemical processes, and transformation mechanisms for the elemental cycling of carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, phosphorus, and sulfur. Also, it examines the fate and chemistry of heavy metals and toxic organic compounds in wetland environments. This new edition is updated throughout and adds three new chapters: Rice Production Systems, Constructed Wetlands, and Stream Sediments.
