Simulation of Ecological and Environmental Models Miguel F. Acevedo

University of North Texas, Denton, USA

“ … particularly excels in its hands-on approach … .”

—Mark A. Harwell, Harwell Gentile & Associates, LC, Port Orange, Florida

Simulation of Ecological and Environmental Models introduces the theory and practice of modeling and simulation as applied in a variety of disciplines that relate to Earth systems, the environment, ecology, and human–nature interactions. Based on the author’s many years of teaching graduate and undergraduate students, it shows how to implement simulations and analyze the results using an opensource software platform. The textbook is organized into three parts to allow greater flexibility using the material. The first part provides a tutorial-style mathematical review and an introduction to the basics of R software. The second part explains the fundamentals of modeling methodology through one-dimensional models. After a review of matrix algebra, the third part progresses to multidimensional models, focusing on structured populations, communities, and ecosystems. The final chapters show how simple models are hooked together to generate more comprehensive models. Solutions manual and PowerPoint® slides available upon qualifying course adoption

Introduction to Systems Ecology Sven Erik Jørgensen

Environmental Science & Engineering Introduction to Renewable Energy

Introduction to Environmental Management

Vaughn Nelson

Edited by

West Texas A&M University, Canyon, USA

As the world population grows and places more demand on limited fossil fuels, renewable energy becomes more relevant as part of the solution to the impending energy dilemma. Renewable energy is now included in national policies, with goals for it to be a significant percentage of generated energy within the coming decades. A comprehensive overview, Introduction to Renewable Energy is a textbook exploring how we can use the sun, wind, biomass, geothermal resources, and water to generate more sustainable energy. Taking a multidisciplinary approach, the book integrates economic, social, environmental, policy, and engineering issues related to renewable energy. It explains the fundamentals of energy, including the transfer of energy, as well as the limitations of natural resources. Starting with solar power, it illustrates how energy from the sun is transferred and stored; used for heating, cooling, and lighting; collected and concentrated; and converted into electricity. It describes residential power usage—including underground and off-grid homes—and houses that are designed to use energy more efficiently or to be completely self-sufficient. The book also examines wind power, bioenergy—including biofuel—and geothermal heat pumps, as well as hydro, tidal, and ocean energy. Describing storage as a billion-dollar idea, the text discusses the challenges of storing energy and provides an overview of technologies from flywheels to batteries. It also examines institutional issues such as environmental regulations, incentives, infrastructure, and social costs and benefits. Emphasizing the concept of life-cycle cost, the book analyzes the costs associated with different sources of energy. Solutions manual available upon qualifying course adoption

Environmental Science & Engineering City Planning for Civil Engineers, Environmental Engineers, and Surveyors Kurt W. Bauer SE Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission, Waukesha, USA

While engineers and surveyors are not urban planners, they are often engaged in urban development. Therefore, a high degree of competence in surveying and mapping, highway and transportation engineering, water resources engineering, environmental engineering, and municipal engineering requires an understanding of urban development problems. It also requires knowledge of and urban planning objectives, principles, and practices. With this in mind, City Planning for Civil Engineers, Environmental Engineers, and Surveyors focuses on areas of urban planning that engineers and surveyors are most likely to confront. The text stresses basic concepts and principles of practice involved in urban planning as most widely practiced, particularly in small- and medium-sized communities. It introduces engineering students to land use planning as a foundation for infrastructure systems planning and development. It also presents plan implementation devices such as zoning, land subdivision control, official mapping, and capital improvement programming. The book describes the factors affecting good land subdivision design and improvement and illustrates the importance of good mapping and control surveys for planning purposes. Written from the perspective that cities are social and economic as well as physical entities, the book offers a historical context for urban planning. Selected Contents: Introduction. Definition of Terminology. The Historic Context of Urban Planning in the United States. Compilation of Essential Data: A Brief Overview. Map Requirements for City Planning. Population Data And Forecast. Economics Data and Forecasts. Land Use and Supporting Infrastructure Data. Natural Resource Base Inventories.

Environmental and Hydrological Systems Modelling A. W. Jayawardena

The University of Hong Kong

Mathematical modelling has become an indispensable tool for engineers, scientists, planners, decision makers, and many other professionals who need to make predictions of future scenarios as well as real impending events. As modelling approaches and the model to be used are problem-specific, no single model or approach can be used to solve all problems, and there are constraints in each situation. Modellers therefore need to have a range of choices when confronted with constraints such as lack of sufficient data, resources, expertise, and time. Environmental and Hydrological Systems Modelling provides the tools for students and professionals embarking on a modelling project. The book presents different approaches to modelling the water environment over a range of spatial and temporal scales. Applications are shown with a series of case studies, taken mainly from the AsiaPacific Region.
