Heavy metals in soils continue to receive increasing attention due to the growing scientific and public awareness of environmental issues and the development of analytical techniques to measure their concentrations accurately. Building on the success and acclaim of the first edition, this book continues to provide an up-to-date, balanced and comprehensive review of the subject in two sections: the first providing an introduction to the metals chemistry, sources and methods used for their analysis; and the second containing chapters dealing with individual elements in detail.Large positive values of pE (or Eh) favour the existence of oxidised species, and low or negative values of pE (or Eh) are ... The combined effect of Eh (or pE) and pH conditions on the forms Fe and Mn are best illustrated by an Eh/pH diagram, anbsp;...
