This entails all waters, including transitional and coastal waters, sediments and biota.The final volume in the Water Quality Measurement Serieshighlights policy frameworks and analytical trends with an emphasis on laboratory methods and quality control.Within this comprehensive text, the following sections are included:Setting the Scene; monitoring of pollutantsPolicy Settings; international conventions and EU marine strategyMarine monitored parameters; trace elements, chemical species, organic micropollutants, and nutrientsTypes of monitoring; classical chemical monitoring, biomonitoring and in-situ methodsQuality assurance; certified reference materials for marine monitoringResearch and developments; the role of sediments in coastal monitoring, and passive sampling technologiesChemical Marine Monitoring:Policy Framework and Analytical Trends is intended for postgraduates and researchers working in analytical chemistry and its application to environmental and health analyses. Those interested in developing new methods and materials in relation to drinking water regulations with also find this book beneficial.
