The environmental problems caused by the increase of pollutant loads discharged into natural water bodies necessitate setting up a framework for regulation and control. This framework needs to be based on scientific results that relate pollutant discharges with changes in water quality. This volume contains papers presented at the ninth International Conference on Water Pollution: Modelling, Monitoring and Management . Over the years, this Conference has made valuable contributions to the knowledge of water pollution problems, which are essentially inter-disciplinary, involving a wide range of issues. The meeting also attracts colleagues from many different countries. The papers published in the book have been divided into the following sections: Coastal Areas, Lakes and Rivers; Groundwater and Aquifer Issues; Environmental Monitoring and Sensing; Remediation; Experimental and Laboratory Work; Mathematical Modelling; Oil Spills; Wastewater Treatment; Low Cost Technologies; Agricultural Contamination; Pollution Prevention.
Water pollution is a subject of public concern. The environmental problems caused by the increase of pollutant loads discharged into natural water bodies require the setting out of frameworks for regulation and control. This book contains papers presented at Ninth International Conference on Modelling, Monitoring and Management of Water Pollution.
