Biophysical Chemistry of Fractal Structures and Processes in Environmental Systems
Series on Analytical and Physical Chemistry of Environmental Systems—Vol. 11

This book employs fractal geometry concepts to understand the properties and processes of diverse environmental systems. The interpretation of complex environmental systems using modern fractal approaches is compared and contrasted with the more classical approaches. The book provides the fundamental knowledge necessary for solving practical environmental problems. Furthermore, it examines how the fractal approach has been applied in order to understand the structure and reactivity of natural environmental systems, including flocs, sediments, soils, microorganisms, and humic substances.
The IUPAC Series on Analytical and Physical Chemistry of Environmental Systems provides a critical evaluation of the state-of-the-art on physicochemical properties and processes in environmental systems, as well as on the analytical techniques required to study and monitor them. The series is aimed at promoting rigorous analysis and understanding of physicochemical functioning of environmental and bioenvironmental systems.
