SETAC announces a new book at Atmospheric Deposition to the Grea



Atmospheric Deposition of Contaminants to the Great Lakes and Coastal
Waters
Edited by Joel E. Baker

The Great Waters provisions of the 1990 Clean Water Act Amendments
catalyzed a new and remarkable interaction between atmospheric and
surface water quality managers and scientist, helping to link air and
surface water quality initiatives in many regions of the earth. 
Scientists are now able to look at air and water quality issues as a
whole, rather than in a more traditional compartmentalized approach. 
Atmospheric Deposition of Contaminants to the Great Lakes and Coastal
Waters, part of the SETAC Technical Publications Series  reports on
initiatives and research in such "great waters" as the Great Lakes and
Lake Champlain, Chesapeake and Narragansett Bays, the mid-Atlantic
Ocean, the western Pacific Basin, and the Arctic Ocean.  Wet and dry
deposition, atmospheric and snow deposition, humidity, weather, and
gas exchange are explored in relation to aerosol particles, forest
canopies, trace elements, and organic compounds.  The results indicate
air-chemical-water interactions that expand our understanding of the
impact of pollutants on air and water quality and of future research
needs into combined air and water issues.
