The book series "Arsenic in the Environment" is an inter- and multidisciplinary source of information, making an effort to link the occurrence of geogenic arsenic in different environments and the potential contamination of ground- and surface water, soil and air and their effect on the human society. The series fulfills the growing interest on the arsenic issue worldwide which is going alongside with stronger regulations of arsenic contents in drinking water and food, which were and are adapted not only by the industrialized countries, but increasingly by developing countries.

The book series covers all fields of research concerning arsenic in the environment with an aim to present an integrated approach from its occurrence in rocks and their mobilization into the ground- and surface water, soil and air, its transport therein, the pathways of arsenic and their introduction into the food chain up to the uptake by humans. Human arsenic exposure, bioavailability, metabolism and toxicology are treated together with related public health effects and risk assessments in order to better manage the contaminated land and aquatic environments to reduce human arsenic exposure. Arsenic removal technologies and other methodologies to mitigate the arsenic problem are addressed not only from the technological, but also from economic and social point of view. Only such inter- and multidisciplinary approaches, would allow case-specific selection of optimal mitigation measures of each specific arsenic problem mitigate the problem and provide the population arsenic safe drinking water, food, and air.

  1. Arsenic Geochemistry

    By Darrell Kirk Nordstrom, Heather E. Jamieson

    Series: Arsenic in the environment

    This book is an overview of arsenic in the environment emphasizing geochemistry. It covers arsenic in rocks, minerals, soils and sediments, surface and ground waters, vegetation, analytical chemistry, with a short section on toxicology and epidemiology, and case histories in about 50 countries....

  2. The Metabolism of Arsenite

    Edited by Joanne M. Santini, Seamus A. Ward

    Series: Arsenic in the environment

    Up to 200 million people in 70 countries are at risk from drinking water contaminated with arsenic, which is a major cause of chronic debilitating illnesses and fatal cancers. Until recently little was known about the mobility of arsenic, and how redox transformations determined its movement into...

  3. Arsenic: Natural and Anthropogenic

    Edited by Eleonora Deschamps, Jörg Matschullat

    Series: Arsenic in the environment

    The discussion on arsenic in the environment is complex and must grasp the importance of very many, mostly unrelated works on individual aspects. This volume represents one of the first comprehensive and interdisciplinary examinations into arsenic's behaviour in air, water, soils, sediments, plants...

  4. The Taiwan Crisis: a showcase of the global arsenic problem

    By Jiin-Shuh Jean, Jochen Bundschuh, Chien-Jen Chen, How-Ran Guo, Chen-Wuing Liu, Tsair-Fuh Lin, Yen-Hua Chen

    Series: Arsenic in the environment

    In the 1950s, the residents of the southwestern coastal areas of Taiwan suffered greatly from Blackfoot disease (BFD) due to the consumption of arsenic-contaminated groundwater. Groundwater with high levels of arsenic in southwestern and northeastern Taiwan received much attention. After...

  5. The Global Arsenic Problem

    Challenges for Safe Water Production

    Edited by Nalan Kabay, Jochen Bundschuh, Bruce Hendry, Marek Bryjak, Kazuharu Yoshizuka, Prosun Bhattacharya, Suer Anac

    Series: Arsenic in the environment

    A prevalent and increasingly important issue, arsenic removal continues to be one of the most important areas of water treatment. Conventional treatment plants may employ several methods for removing arsenic from water. Commonly used processes include oxidation, sedimentation, coagulation and...

  6. Natural Arsenic in Groundwaters of Latin America

    Edited by Jochen Bundschuh, M. A. Armienta, Peter Birkle, Prosun Bhattacharya, Jörg Matschullat, A. B. Mukherjee

    Series: Arsenic in the environment

    Groundwater resources naturally contain high levels of arsenic in many parts of the world. Over the last two decades, the As-containing groundwater in South-East Asia has received much attention, but the situation is just as crucial in Latin America, where the number of studies is still relatively...
