There is probably no more direct connection between the science of chemistry and our modern society than that encompassed in the field we now call environmental chemistry. As populations have grown, and population density in certain areas has increased dramatically, the impact of all human presence on our air, water, and soil has become pronounced. In many cases, the impact has been negative, yet every human being must leave some footprint of their time on Earth, no matter how small. This makes it important that we examine our surroundings in some detail. This book is an impressive collection of ways that environmental chemistry is explored by both undergraduate and graduate students in independent research projects and course-based undergraduate research experiences. Students are exploring these topics in interdisciplinary groups both within their institution and the greater community.
