Water Quality Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Risk Analysis of Water Pollution
Second Edition
by Jacques Ganoulis

Risk Analysis of Water Pollution has now been extensively updated to accommodate the latest developments in water quality assessment, as well as in risk theory.

The practice-oriented guide is a unique tool for identifying and evaluating local and regional environmental hazards from water pollution.

Both groundwater, riverine water, and (coastal) seawater pollution is covered, including several case studies, complete with real-life data and a thorough evaluation using the methods described in Risk Analysis of Water Pollution.

These include various mathematical approaches, such as decision theory, utility theory, fuzzy set theory, and risk-based multi-criteria decision analysis.
