Modern Industrial Hygiene, Volume 1 - Recognition and Evaluation of Chemical
The first volume of a multi-volume set, Recognition and Evaluation of Chemical Agents fills the need for both an authoritative, comprehensive textbook, and an up-to-date multidisciplinary resource for the field. The book begins with an overview of industrial hygiene, and leads into discussions of sampling strategy, exposure assessment, statistics, instrumentation, and sampling media. Appendices provide hard-to-find data on vapor pressures and other physical-chemical constants. Its multidisciplinary scope, and emphasis on real-world problems and applications make this a reference of exceptional authority and practical value.
