This beautifully illustrated text is designed to serve the integrated, rigorous science-based undergraduate curriculum that is emerging in environmental science. Emphasis is placed on a conceptual understanding of environmental impact by integrating the key scientific disciplines that investigate the sources, fate, transport, mitigation, and toxicology of pollutants. Abiotic and biotic processes in the soil/vadose zone, surface waters, and the atmosphere are all examined in the context of existing pollution and the potential to minimize future pollution. Innovative coverage includes the practical problems of remediation, environmental monitoring and risk assessment and management. The book will also serve as an authoritative reference for advanced students and environmental professionals.
* Integrates areas of biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, and earth sciences related to the fate, mitigation, and transport of pollutants
* Evaluates pollution in the soil/vadose zone, the atmosphere, surface water, and groundwater
* Written by nationally recognized experts
* Richly illustrated and documented with 186 full color illustrations and photographs and 79 tables
* Concepts are clearly presented yet maintain rigor

In 1994 he was also named as a fellow to the American Society of Agronomy, and he became the Chair of the Soil Biology and Biohemistry Division of the Soil Science Society of America. Pepper is also a Fellow of the American Society of Microbiology, and has been a member of the Editorial Board of Applied and Environmental Microbiology for the past nine years. Pepper has also been the author or co-author of numerous published journal articles.
Dr. Gerba has 30 years experience in the area of wastewater and waste recycling in agriculture. He has been involved in numerous projects on use of soil aquifer treatment for reuse of domestic wastewater for crop production, composting of domestic solid waste, use of wastewater for fish and shellfish aquiculture, surface water pollution and control from animal feeding operations, reuse of sewage sludge on farm land, and use of wetlands for recycling of animal waste. His expertise is in the area of pathogen fate and removal by treatment processes and risk assessment. He has served on numerous local, state, and federal committees and expert workshops for the development of standards and guidelines for the treatment and recycling of wastes to minimize environmental impacts. He was a member of the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency's Science Advisory Board for 8 years. He has organized and participated in workshops on food and water safety throughout the U.S. and Latin America. He has co-authored nine workshop training manuals.
