Environmental Science & Engineering New!

Environmental Economics An Integrated Approach Philip E. Graves University of Colorado, Boulder, USA

Principles of Ecotoxicology Fourth Edition C.H. Walker, R.M. Sibly, S.P. Hopkin, and D.B. Peakall

Rigorous, yet written in a way that facilitates understanding of sometimes difficult material, this book provides practical and working knowledge of how environmental policy analysis is conducted in the United States and elsewhere. It details the tools required to conduct that analysis and also discusses weaknesses in the existing methods, underlining areas for future improvement.

Environmental Science & Engineering Forthcoming!

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. This textbook 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 Asia-Pacific Region.

Coverage includes: • Linear systems • Conceptual models • Data driven models • Process-based models

Global Environmental Policy Concepts, Principles, and Practice Charles H. Eccleston Environmental Consultant, USA

Frederic March Thinkwell Associates, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA

Environmental policy is often practiced reactively with each crisis addressed as an isolated event. Focusing on development of proactive policies, this book provides the essential scientific and socioeconomic framework for formulating pragmatic and comprehensive environmental policies. It discusses topics of interest to American and international audiences. Beginning with basic concepts, the book proceeds successively on to more advanced principles, theories, and practices for developing and implementing comprehensive environmental policy solutions. Topics are introduced in a logical, yet connected, user-friendly manner. Using practical case studies and examples, the book illustrates both the power and limitations of theoretical approaches. It defines the scope and nature of the environmental policy problem, outlining its origins and evolution, and introduces the policy frameworks of the United Nations, European Union, and the United States.

Theodore Tutorials, East Williston, New York, USA

Abhishek Tiwary

Translating complex environmental issues into understandable concepts, this text is useful to everyone from students to professionals. By gaining a background in regulations, pollutants, and waste management, students learn how to help alleviate many of these problems. Detailed material on the Superfund program provides an example on how to get involved. Pressing issues regarding the effects of nanotechnology and global climate change on the environment emphasize the need for education and action. An accompanying website with continuous updates, PowerPoint slides, practice problems, solutions, and exams provides versatility for this everlasting resource.

A comprehensive textbook covering the three essential components of air pollution science, this third edition covers a wide range of air quality issues, retaining a quantitative perspective. Topics covered include gaseous and particulate air pollutants, measurement techniques, meteorology and dispersion modelling, mobile sources, indoor air, and effects on plants, materials, humans, and animals. Moving away from classical toxic air pollutants, there is a chapter on climate change and another on the depletion of stratospheric ozone. A special feature of this new edition is the inclusion of a fresh chapter on air pollution mitigation by vegetation, mainly its role in maintaining a sustainable urban environment.

A complete teaching tool, this book offers a combination of insightful coverage, concise language, and convenient pedagogical features.

The book is recommended for upper-level undergraduate and postgraduate courses specializing in air pollution, both for environmental scientists and engineers. The new material included in the Third Edition extends its use by practitioners in consultancies or local authorities.
