The book series "Arsenic in the Environment - Proceedings" comprises the outcomes of the international congress series Arsenic in the Environment, and other scientific events constitute a regular update on the newest developments of global arsenic research. This Proceedings series forms an ideal complementation to the books of the series. Arsenic (As) is a naturally occurring toxic metalloid which is introduced into the environment through natural geochemical processes and several anthropogenic actions.

Arsenic is a major environmental pollutant and exposure occurs through environmental, occupational and medicinal sources. The contaminated drinking water is the main source of exposure and. Source, distribution, toxicity and remediation of arsenic in the environment containing arsenic also contributes to the emission of arsenic into the atmosphere [3] (see Figure 1(AB)). Natural sources such as volcanoes can contribute to the release of .

  Arsenic: A metallic element that forms a number of poisonous compounds, arsenic is found in nature at low levels mostly in compounds with oxygen, chlorine, and sulfur. These are called inorganic arsenic compounds. Arsenic in plants and animals combines with carbon and hydrogen. This is called organic arsenic. Handbook of Arsenic Toxicology presents the latest findings on arsenic, its chemistry, its sources and its acute and chronic effects on the environment and human health. The book takes readings systematically through the target organs, before detailing current .

Human health and ecosystem. Arsenic is a naturally occurring element that is widely distributed in the Earth’s crust. It is found in water, air, food, and soil. There are two general forms of arsenic: Scientists, pediatricians, and public health advocates are increasingly concerned about the more subtle and long-range health effects of low-level exposures to humans.

Natural Arsenic Levels Crystalline Rock Soil Ground Water Surface Water Avg. 2 ppm ppm – ppb As high as 40, in hot springs – 65 ppb. Arsenic is the 14th most abundant element in sea water, and its average concentration ranges between 1 and 2 μg/L in unpolluted sea l sources included volcanic eruption, hot springs, atmospheric deposition through low temperature volatilization, sea spray, riverine input, geysers, and marine hydrothermal fluids from active oceanic ridges, which play a significant Cited by: 4.

The effects depend on the chemical form of the arsenic, the nature of the surrounding environment and their own particular biological sensitivity.

Individual organisms or whole populations may be affected. Adverse effects include death, poor growth and failure to reproduce.

Abstract. Arsenic (atom. 33) is a steel-gray, brittle, crystalline metalloid with three allotropic forms that are yellow, black, and gray. It tarnishes in air and when heated is rapidly oxidized to arsenous oxide (As 2 O 3) with the odor of belongs to Group V-A of the periodic table, has an atom.

Their sensitivity is modified both by biological factors and by their surrounding physical and chemical environment.

In general, inorganic forms of arsenic are more toxic to the environment than organic forms and, among inorganic forms, arsenite is more toxic than .
