Description / Abstract:

The intent of the Water Encyclopedia is to create a comprehensive depository of all information relating to the scientific and technological aspects of the world's most important natural resource -- water.  Many of the current titles on the subject of water do not clearly explain what they are about; they often split hairs of minutiae, leaving little substance per book.  The role of water in science, engineering and society requires a one-stop location to find whatever information is available on the cutting edge of the 21st century. This book will be used as a resource for useful public domain data.  Its focus will be expert narrative on all water related subjects. The topics covered in complete detail within the Encyclopedia of Water include, water quality, wastewater, ground water, surface water, ocean water, rainwater drinking water, industrial water, water chemistry, ultrapure water and water resources. All contributions to the encyclopedia will be written by established scientists with expertise in the fields they address.  Most topics will be prepared as short digestible entries, similar to Wiley's Encyclopedia of Molecular Biology, making it easy for users to find the required information quickly, without the need to search through long articles.  Some subjects, however, will be treated at considerable length. Shorter items will be cross-referenced with all related longer pieces contained therein, enabling the reader to get as much information as needed at the desired level of detail.
