The present practice-oriented publication was prepared with the specific intention to address virtually all aspects of the sea-water analysis by means of the classical plus the most advanced and recently introduced techniques. Until now, such analysis was limited to some number of major constituents. It will be of great interest to anyone dealing with the environment protection and to other workers such as river. Authorities, oceanographers, practicing analysts, scientists and, of course, environmentalists. T. Crompton, the author of the volume, collected all methods published in the last several decades years. The main content of the work has been supplemented with almost fifty tables and same number of figures. The methods of the seawater analysis have been presented in a very logical manner making them easy to understand and perform. The book starts with a chapter addressing the sampling and storage matters, including the devices used. The second chapter deals with determination of the anions, while the third one covers the anions in both coastal and estuary waters. Remaining chapters of the publication address the dissolved gases, cations in the sea water, cations in the coastal, bay and estuary waters, radioactive elements and organic/organometallic compounds, sample preparation, and elemental analysis.
