Arsenic in Groundwater: Poisoning and Risk Assessment
by M. Manzurul Hassan
Arsenic-contaminated groundwater is considered one of the world’s largest environmental heath crises. This book addresses how arsenic in groundwater impacts human health by using the frameworks of natural sciences, social sciences, and health sciences in the context set by environmental and legal considerations.
The book examines the spatial, quantitative, and qualitative aspects on arsenic poisoning, uses geographical information systems (GIS) to investigate the spatial discontinuity of arsenic-laced water in spatial dimensions, discusses long-term strategies, talks about hidden issues of arsenic poisoning on human health, examines legal aspects such as the right to safe drinking water, and much more.
