Since the 1920s scientists and engineers have been using mathematic models to stimulate the transport and fate of pollutants in natural waters. Today and in the forseeable future more of these applications are being generated in an effort to develop ecomnomic solutions to water quality problems. The primary auidence for this book is the advanced undergraduates and first-year graduate students, including both MSc and PhD. The first two parts of the text cover modelling fundamentals, including material on mathematics, numerical methods, kinetics and diffusion. The remaining parts deal with major water quality modelling problems such as dissolved oxygen, eutrophication and toxics. The book has a strong computer-orientation - a specifically created Visual Basic program is available over the Internet.

Newest, most up-to-date book on the subject since Thomann.
Stresses theory and application.
Lecture format makes it easy to structure course.
Covers fundamentals of WQM but it can be used as well for second course.
Software is a well recognized, useful adjunct.
Since the 1920's scientists and engineers around the globe have been using mathematical models to simulate the transport and fate of pollutants in natural waters. Today and in the foreseeable future more of these applications are being generated in an effort to develop economical solutions to water-quality problems. The primary audience for this book is first-year graduate students, including both MA and PhD., students, although, the book could be used as a basis for senior undergraduate course. The text is divided into seven major parts.
