Environmental Transport Phenomena offers a detailed yet accessible introduction to transport phenomena. It begins by explaining the underlying principles and mechanisms that govern mass transport and continues by tackling practical problems spanning all subdisciplines of environmental science and chemical engineering.

Assuming some knowledge of ordinary differential equations and a familiarity with basic applications of fluid mechanics, this classroom-tested text:

Addresses mass conservation and macroscopic mass balances, placing a special emphasis on applications to environmental processesCovers the fundamentals of diffusive transport, applications of the diffusion equation, and diffusive transport in reactive systemsDiscusses convective transport, hydrodynamic dispersion, and transport in multiphase systemsPresents a mathematical framework for formulating and solving transport phenomena problems

Environmental Transport Phenomena makes an ideal textbook for a one-semester advanced undergraduate or graduate introductory course in transport phenomena. It provides a fundamental understanding of how to quantify the spread and distribution of contaminants in the environment as well as the basis for designing processes related to water purification, wastewater treatment, and solid waste disposal, among others.

"This textbook, authored by accomplished professors, is a very comprehensive resource for modeling and analyzing the environmental fate of chemicals and contaminants in the ecosystem using fundamental principles of transport phenomena."
--Sunggyu Lee, Ohio University, Athens, USA

"The approach and selected topics are excellent. ... I believe the book Environmental Transport Phenomena will give an in-depth understanding of transport phenomena and how it is applied."
--Nayef Ghasem, United Arab Emirates University, Al Ain

"...the authors of Environmental Transport Phenomena have done great work by including several illustrations and examples to explain the fundamental concepts in each chapter. Overall, the book is well organized. I strongly recommend it for senior chemical and environmental engineering undergraduate students, for courses on process modeling and simulation, and for graduate students taking courses in transport phenomena."
-Vadose Zone Journal, May 2016
