Geochemical modeling is a powerful tool for characterizing environmental site contaminations and predicting environmental impacts. This book discusses the application of geochemical models to environmental practice and studies, through the use of numerous case studies of real-world environmental problems, such as acid mine drainage, pit lake chemistry, nuclear waste disposal, and landfill leachates. In each example the authors clearly define the environmental threat in question; explain how geochemical modeling may help solve the problem posed; and advise the reader how to prepare input files for geochemical modeling codes and interpret the results in terms of meeting regulatory requirements. Support material for the book, including input files, is available on the Internet. Environmental Applications of Geochemical Modeling will serve as an advanced textbook for courses in environmental geochemistry, and as an indispensable reference for professional hydrogeologists, geochemists, engineers, and regulators, working within the environmental spheres.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"...an excellent text for an introduction to fundamental principles and practical techniques of geochemical modeling as applied to problems in environmental contamination." Ground Water
"...well written, easy to read, and well illustrated. The authors are to be commended for their honest evaluation of modeling and their challenge to increase their use and enhance the realism of modeling in natural settings." Journal of the American Water Resources Association
