This quantity comprises papers chosen from these provided on the overseas Symposium at the research of Hydrocarbons and Halogenated Hydrocarbons within the Aquatic setting, may well 23-25, 1978. The Symposium used to be prepared by means of the nationwide Water study Institute of atmosphere Canada and the Institute for Environmental reviews of the college of Toronto. the aim of the Symposium and of this quantity used to be to collect details at the analyses, behaviour and results of hydro­ carbons and halogenated hydrocarbons at the aquatic setting. This classification of contaminants offers many tough analytical professional­ blems, and to a wide volume our skill to spot environmental difficulties and examine their severity, is determined by the provision of proved analytical thoughts. through exposing employees during this box to the innovations and result of others we are hoping that development will be made in the direction of fixing the various difficulties as a result of those ingredients. The papers during this quantity are divided into 5 different types: plenary consultation addresses given by way of J.P. Bruce and O. Hutzinger, eleven papers describing quantitative analytical effects, 12 papers on analytical tools, nine papers on occurrence, tracking and pathways; and at last, thirteen papers on consuming water, healthiness and organic results. We have been lucky in having the help of the various agencies and contributors indexed after this preface. particularly we thank B.F. Scott and R. Knechtel for his or her assist in organizing the Symposium, S. Paterson, C. Straka, B. Reuber, A. Bobra, R. Wan, S. Austin, G.E.
