Pollution from industrial, agricultural and domestic sources is constantly reducing water quality world-wide. This, in turn, is leading to the serious degradation of ecosystems and constituting a direct threat to public health. A major scientific and technological effort is needed to achieve the sustainable management of water resources and this crucial challenge cannot be met without international and multidisciplinary co-operation between researchers. The highly successful International Conferences on Water Pollution provide an ideal forum for discussion between specialists working in a broad variety of fields, such as fluid mechanics, oceanography, hydrology, computer sciences, biology, chemistry, monitoring, and remote sensing. Featuring the proceedings of the fifth meeting in the series, this book contains contributions from many different countries and covers a multitude of topics and techniques.Papers are divided under the following headings: Wastewater Treatment and Sewage Systems; Mathematical and Physical Modelling; Modelling as a Management Tool; Saltwater Intrusion; Biological Effects; Hydrodynamic and Water Quality Modelling; Chemical and Nuclear Pollution; Pollution of Estuaries, Coastal Seas and Open Seas; Experimental and Laboratory Work; Lakes, Rivers and Channels; Heavy Metals; Groundwater and Aquifer Contamination; Organic Contaminants; and Oil Spills.
