Analysts, researchers, and regulators have relied on this peer-reviewed publication since 1905, and it remains a trusted source of accurate, proven methodology for analyzing natural waters, water supplies, and wastewaters.
The book contains over 400 laboratory methods for the analysis of: Dissolved Solids,
Metals, Free and Total Chlorine, Odor, Taste, and Flavor Profile Analysis, Disinfection By-products, Radionuclides, Total Organic Carbon
and Total and Fecal Coliform.
The 22nd edition advances the science of water analysis with input and consensus of hundreds of water and wastewater experts from around the world. Laboratories worldwide rely on this comprehensive reference as a trusted source of accurate, proven methodology for analysis of water, water supplies, and wastewater. It is the essential resource.
The methods in the 22nd edition (as in previous editions) are believed to be the best available, generally accepted procedures for analyzing water, wastewater, and related materials. They represent the recommendations of specialists, ratified by a large number of analysts and others of more general expertise, and as such are truly consensus standards, offering a valid and recognized basis for control and evaluation.
All methods are dated to identify which ones changed significantly between editions.
New in the 22nd edition
*The Quality Control for Parts 2000 7000 has been expanded and significantly revised to make the methods more suitable for regulatory compliance.
*Twenty-two sections in Part 9000 Microbiological Examination were revised and new procedures added. These include information on viable but nonculturable bacteria, new information on the fluorogenic substrate test for E. coli, and an expansion of the section on identification of iron and sulfur bacteria.
* Flavor Profile Analysis for drinking water was expanded with an extended introduction and new taste-and-odor color wheel.
*The determination of metals using Inductively Coupled Plasma/Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) contains updated quality control requirements and added collision cell technology.
*Additional sampling, filtering, and storage requirements were added to UV-Absorbing Organic Constituents.
*New methods have been added for the determination of nitrosamines in drinking water.

Lowest new price: $15.99
Lowest used price: $21.47
List price: $27.50
Author: Mike Magner
While the big bad corporation has often been the offender in many of the world’s greatest environmental disasters, in the case of the mass poisoning at Camp Lejeune the culprit is a revered institution: the US Marine Corps. For two decades now, revelations have steadily emerged about pervasive contamination, associated clusters of illness and death among the Marine families stationed there, and military stonewalling and failure to act. Mike Magner’s chilling investigation creates a suspenseful narrative from the individual stories, scientific evidence, and smoldering sense of betrayal among those whose motto is undying fidelity. He also raises far-reaching and ominous questions about widespread contamination on US military bases worldwide.

Praise for the previous editions of Wetlands:
"Wetlands, the field of study, would not be what it is without Wetlands, the book."
——Bill Streever, Wetlands, 2001
"The Third Edition of this highly successful book manages to set new standards in presentation and content to confirm its place as the first point of reference for those working or studying wetlands."
——Chris Bradley, University of Birmingham, UK, Regulated Rivers: Research and Management
"This book is the wetlands bible...the most wide-ranging [book] on the subject."
——Carl Folke, Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, Land Use Policy
"The single best combination text and reference book on wetland ecology."

"First on my list of references to recommend to someone new to wetland policy management or science."
——Jay A. Leitch, North Dakota State University, Water Resources Bulletin
For more than two decades, William Mitsch and James Gosselink's Wetlands has been the premier reference on wetlands for ecologists, land use planners, and water resource managers worldwide—a comprehensive compendium of the state of knowledge in wetland science, management, and restoration.
Now Mitsch and Gosselink bring their classic book up to date with substantial new information and a streamlined text supplemented with a support web site. This new Fourth Edition maintains the authoritative quality of its predecessors while offering such revisions as:
Refocused coverage on the three main parts of the book: 1. An introduction to the extent, definitions, and general features of wetlands of the world; 2. Wetland science; and 3. Wetland management.
New chapter on climate change and wetlands that introduces the student to the roles that wetlands have in climate change and impact that climate change has on wetlands.
Increased international coverage, including wetlands of Mexico and Central America, the Congolian Swamp and Sine Saloum Delta of Africa, the Western Siberian Lowlands, the Mesopotamian Marshland restoration in Iraq, and the wetland parks of Asia such as Xixi National Wetland Park in eastern China and Gandau Nature Park in Taipei, Taiwan. This expanded coverage is illustrated with over 50 wetland photographs from around the world.
Several hundred new refer?ences for further reading, up-to-date data, and the latest research findings.
Over 35 new info boxes and sidebars provide essential background information to concepts being presented and case studies of wetland restoration and treatment in practice.
