Combining critical evaluations with a thorough literature review, "Metals in Aquatic Systems" identifies and critiques
- Fate and transport models, how they evaluate exposure levels of metals in surface waters and sediments as well as metal bioavailability
- Bioaccumulation and toxicity models, their strengths and weaknesses with respect to metals and metal compounds
- Chemical equilibrium models, their capabilities and the results of a feature-by-feature comparison
- Other models of interest, including stand-alone hydrodynamic and sediment transport models
By offering recommendations for future development efforts, the authors seek to enhance the predictive capability of existing and forthcoming models to evaluate metals in aquatic systems. Collectively, the authors have a wide range of experience in the development and application of the types of models reviewed in this book.
