This is a textbook for courses and independent study in environmental and chemical engineering, as well as in many other disciplines concerned with transport and diffusion of all manner of chemicals. Estimating the transport and fate of chemicals released into the environment is an interesting and challenging task. The global environment is large, on the chemical transport and fate scale. This text applies the mathematics of diffusion, turbulent diffusion and dispersion to the atmosphere, lakes, rivers, groundwater and the ocean, as well as transport between these media. The required theory is explained as a solution technique to solve the case studies and example problems. A large portion of the book is dedicated to examples and case studies, from which the important principles are derived.

• This text is designed to develop insight to the diffusion, turbulent diffusion and dispersion problems in chemical transport through the environment • It is also designed to provide skills that can be used to develop quick solutions to simplified boundary conditions for environmental transport problems • Finally, it is designed to test and verify computational solutions to the diffusion equation in situations that are similar to those to be modeled computationally • The book follows a new educational paradigm, in that it is based upon examples and case studies. The required theory is explained as a solution technique to solve the case studies and example problems
