9780028656144: Water: Science and Issues: 003

"Water: Science and Issues" is an illustrated encyclopedia that addresses interdisciplinary aspects of water resources for a wide audience. Broadly applicable for general readers as well as those wanting a firm academic foundation, this 4-volume work is suitable for high school and college students, public library patrons, and professionals seeking a comprehensive collection of water-related topics. The books in this set discuss timely issues such as security, conflict, globalization, sustainability, global warming, pollution, invasive species, water scarcity, and pharmaceuticals and consumer chemicals in water supplies. It also provides a scientific context by summarizing principles of hydrology, geology, ecology, environmental science, engineering, oceanography, economics, policy, planning, management and law. In 300 alphabetically arranged articles written by water scientists, professors, and educators, "Water: Science and Issues" integrates key concepts, current issues, traditional and emerging research, and major legislation in three subject areas: fresh waters (groundwater, lakes, streams, and ice); marine waters; and policy and management. These topics are complemented by historical overviews, biographical sketches, and career information. More than 575 color photographs and illustrations help tell water's interdisciplinary story. Selected glossary definitions, sidebars, cross-references, and a short bibliography accompany each entry. A comprehensive glossary, cumulative index, and other reference aids provide additional utility.
