Introduction to Monitoring and Surveillance of the Environment.
Champlin, Robert L.; And Others
This text on monitoring and surveillance is intended for the undergraduate college student and the professional technician. The materials contained within the book are presented from both a practical and philosophical standpoint. The "reason for" and the "how to" are examined within each section, including problems at the end of each chapter which require work in the field, either in making actual measurements or in working with the professionals who make measurements. The text includes four sections. Section I, General Considerations, looks at pollution, monitoring and surveillance systems, sampling, data analysis and presentation, and fundamentals of electricity, electronics, and instrumentation. Section II, The Water Environment, examines properties of the water environment, legal and administrative requirements, parameter significance and variation, monitoring, robot surveillance networks, and available water data. Section III, The Air Environment, covers meteorology, parameters of the air environment, variations in time and space, monitoring techniques, and surveillance networks. The final section, Pesticides, looks at the occurrence and detection of organic pesticides in the environment. A listing of literature cited completes the text. (TK)
