Environmental Soil and Water Chemistry – Principles and Applications is written by V. P. Evangelou (University of Kentucky, Lexington, Kentucky) and published by John Wiley and Sons Inc. in 1998.

Environmental Soil and Water Chemistry is designed to serve as a beginning textbook for college seniors and beginning graduate students in environmental sciences, and is tailored specifically to the disciplines of soil science, environmental science, agricultural engineering, environmental engineering, and environmental geology.

The textbook contains reviews of all the necessary fundamental principles of chemistry required for understanding soil-water chemistry and quality and soil-water treatments of chemically polluted soils and waters, for example, heavy-metal contaminated soil-water, acid drainage, and restoration of sodic soils and brackish waters. The purpose of the book is to educate college seniors and beginning graduate students about the toxicity, chemistry, and control of pollutants in the soil-water environment and about the application of such knowledge to environmental restoration. Special emphasis is placed on the educational level at which the book is written so that it can be understood by seniors and beginning graduate students majoring in environmental science.

The book consists of two major sections-Principles and Application. Each section covers several major subject areas. The Principles section is divided into the following parts: I. Water Chemistry and Mineral Solubility; II. Soil Minerals and Surface Chemical Properties; and III. Electrochemistry and Kinetics. The Application section also covers several subject areas: IV. Soil Dynamics and Agricultural-Organic Chemicals; V. Colloids and Transport Processes in Soils; VI. Land-Disturbance Pollution and Its Control; VII. Soil and Water: Quality and Treatment Technologies. Each subject area contains one to three chapters.
