There are an enormous number of published works dealing with the environmental problems that are present in our society today. ON-CALL Environmental has compiled a list (see below). All of these books are available at Amazon.com.

Environmental Chemistry [Hardcover]
Colin Baird (Author)
Michael Cann (Author)

Global warming. Renewable energy. Hazardous waste. Carbon footprints. These and other environmental topics are being discussed and debated more vigorously than ever. Colin Baird and Michael Cann's Environmental Chemistry is the only textbook that explores the chemical processes and properties underlying these crucial issues at an accessible, introductory level (only general chemistry is a prerequisite).

With authoritative coverage that balances soil, water, and air chemistry, the new edition again focuses on the environmental impacts of chemical production and experimentation, offering additional "green chemistry" sections and new case studies, plus updated coverage of instrumental analysis, farming applications, bioengineering, and biotechnology.

Environmental Chemistry, 9th Edition [Hardcover]
Stanley E. Manahan (Author)

The field of environmental chemistry has evolved significantly since the publication of the first edition of Environmental Chemistry. Throughout the book’s long life, it has chronicled emerging issues such as organochloride pesticides, detergent phosphates, stratospheric ozone depletion, the banning of chlorofluorocarbons, and greenhouse warming. During this time the first Nobel Prize for environmental chemistry was awarded. Written by environmental chemist Stanley Manahan, each edition has reflected the field’s shift of emphasis from pollution and its effects to its current emphasis on sustainability.

What makes this book so enduring? Completely revised, this ninth edition retains the organizational structure that has made past editions so popular while updating coverage of principles, tools, and techniques to provide fundamental understanding of environmental chemistry and its applications. Rather than immediately discussing specific environmental problems, Manahan systematically develops the concept of environmental chemistry so that when specific pollutions problems are discussed, the background necessary to understand the problem has already been developed.

New in the Ninth Edition:

* Revised discussion of sustainability and environmental science
* Updates information on chemical fate and transport, cycles of matter
* Examination of the connection between environmental chemistry and green chemistry
* Coverage of transgenic crops
* The role of energy in sustainability
* Potential use of toxic substances in terrorist attacks

Manahan emphasizes the importance of the anthrosphere — that part of the environment made and operated by humans and their technologies. Acknowledging technology will be used to support humankind on the planet, it is important that the anthrosphere be designed and operated in a manner that is compatible with sustainability and that it interacts constructively with the other environmental spheres. With clear explanations, real-world examples, and updated questions and answers, the book emphases the concepts essential to the practice of environmental science, technology, and chemistry while introducing the newest innovations in the field.

Principles of Environmental Chemistry [Hardcover]
James E. Girard (Author)

Today there is worldwide concern that many of our human activities are endangering perhaps permanently the quality of the environment. We must act fast to address these growing problems. The second edition of Principles of Environmental Chemistry exposes readers to environmental issues from a perspective that appreciates that chemical reactions drive all natural processes and outlines the connection between those processes and human behavior. Written for students with knowledge of general chemistry, this text provides the tools needed to understand the underlying chemical processes operating in the environment, while demonstrating how challenging it is to measure these systems. With this concept of interdependence students will begin to understand pressing environmental issues like ozone depletion, global warming, air and water pollution, and the hazards of radioactivity. # Hardcover: 720 pages

Chemistry of the Environment (The New Chemistry) [Paperback]
David E. Newton (Author)

This is a comprehensive guide to the role of chemistry in our environment."Chemistry of the Environment" provides a general introduction to the role of chemistry in environmental issues, including air and water pollution, solid wastes, and the relatively new field of green chemistry. Some of the most obvious examples of pollution are smoke produced by industrial operations, carbon dioxide and other gases released into the atmosphere as a by-product of burning fuels, silt and sediment washed off land by rainwater, and garbage dumped on land.This accessible new book discusses the chemical nature of air, water, and solid waste pollution; the biological, chemical, and physical effects of pollutants; and the methods available for the control of each type of pollution. In addition to vast scientific information, this volume presents historical background and a brief introduction to social, political, economic, legal, and other issues related to the environment. Biographical information on important researchers in the field is also provided.The chapters include: The Road to Earth Day; Chemistry of the Air: Pollutants; Chemistry of the Atmosphere: Changes in the Atmosphere; Chemistry of Water Pollution; Chemistry of Solid Waste Disposal; and, Green Chemistry. # Reading level: Young Adult

Elements of Environmental Chemistry [Paperback]
Ronald A. Hites (Author)

The basics of environmental chemistry and a toolbox for solving problems

Elements of Environmental Chemistry uses real-world examples to help readers master the quantitative aspects of environmental chemistry. Complex environmental issues are presented in simple terms to help readers grasp the basics and solve relevant problems. Topics covered include: steady- and non-steady-state modeling, chemical kinetics, stratospheric ozone, photochemical smog, the greenhouse effect, carbonate equilibria, the application of partition coefficients, pesticides, and toxic metals. Numerous sample problems help readers apply their skills. An interactive textbook for students, this is also a great refresher course for practitioners.

Environmental Organic Chemistry [Paperback]
Rene P. Schwarzenbach (Author), Philip M. Gschwend (Author), Dieter M. Imboden (Author)

Environmental Organic Chemistry focuses on environmental factors that govern the processes that determine the fate of organic chemicals in natural and engineered systems. The information discovered is then applied to quantitatively assessing the environmental behaviour of organic chemicals. Now in its 2nd edition this book takes a more holistic view on physical-chemical properties of organic compounds. It includes new topics that address aspects of gas/solid partitioning, bioaccumulation, and transformations in the atmosphere.

-Structures chapters into basic and sophisticated sections
-Contains illustrative examples, problems and case studies
-Examines the fundamental aspects of organic, physical and inorganic chemistry - applied to environmentally relevant problems
-Addresses problems and case studies in one volume
