Environmental chemistry is the study of chemicals, which by their absence or presence in critical amounts, influence life on land and in water.  Environmental chemistry includes the chemicals that influence the levels of critical chemicals such as oxygen and carbon dioxide.  Hence environmental chemistry is concerned with contamination of the atmosphere and water resulting from industrial pollution.  Environmental chemistry includes methods of detection, quantifying the presence, and measuring differences from the natural state, as well as their effects.

This category and its sub-categories includes sites about promoting and aiding this study.

Please submit sites promoting consultancy, testing, scientific equipment or supplies, to the appropriate subcategory of Products and Services.

Until it has its own category, sites on development of environmentally friendlier manufacturing processes, Green Chemistry, may be submitted here.  However, sites primarily on issues of pollution, rather than scientific chemistry content, should be submitted to a category linked from Society: Issues: Environment: Pollution.

This category lists sites for organizations which themselves do not conduct scientific research, but aim to spread information about research methods and results in the field of Environmental Chemistry.  These associations organize meetings, provide research grants and other activities for scientists in the field.  Scientists active in Environmental Chemistry are encouraged to become members of such organizations.

This category is specifically for professional associations that encourage environmental chemistry as a sub-discipline of chemistry and environmental sciences.

This category lists specialist publications geared towards environmental chemists and individuals with a professional interest in chemicals affecting the environment.  Related subjects are available through the links.

Note that sites promoting individual books are not listed here.  Users are referred to the links available from Science: Environment: Publications: Books or Science: Chemistry: Publications: Books.
