Science of The Total Environment

Science of the Total Environment is an international journal for publication of original research on the total environment, which includes the atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, lithosphere, and anthroposphere. The total environment is characterized where these five spheres overlap. Studies that focus on at least two or three of these will be given primary consideration. Papers reporting results from only one sphere will not be considered. Field studies are given priority over laboratory studies. The total environment is studied when data are collected and described from these five spheres. By definition total environment studies must be multidisciplinary. Subject areas may include, but are not limited to: • Agriculture, forestry, land use and management • Air pollution quality and human health • Contaminant (bio)monitoring and assessment • Ecosystem services and life cycle assessments • Ecotoxicology and risk assessment • Emerging fields including global change and contaminants • Environmental management and policy • Environmental remediation • Environmental sources, processes and global cycling • Groundwater hydrogeochemistry and modeling • Human health risk assessment and management • Nanomaterials in the environment • Noise in the environment • Persistent organic pollutants • Plant science and toxicology • Remote sensing • Stress ecology in marine, freshwater and terrestrial ecosystems • Trace metals and organics in biogeochemical cycles • Waste and water treatment
