"The book advances the sate-of-the-art by not only documenting how to monitor the environment, but also referring the reader to other more detailed comprehensive books. This nicely illustrated book should be useful at the senior undergraduate level, as well as to students initiating graduate studies in environmental sciences." -INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF ENVIRONEMTNAL AND ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY, MARCH 2005 "This would be a valuable addition to any library that had an audience concerned with the environment." -Robert F. Skinder, Science Reference Librarian, University of South Carolina-Columbia Thomas Cooper Library for E-STREAMS, Jan 2005
