9780131481930: Introduction to Environmental Engineering and Science (3rd Edition)

This work presents all the major categories of environmental pollution, with coverage of current topics such as climate change and ozone depletion, risk assessment, indoor air quality, source-reduction and recycling, and groundwater contamination.

From the Publisher:

A moderately technical introduction to a wide range of environmental topics -- including issues relating to water and air pollution, hazardous waste and risk assessment, waste treatment technologies, and global climate change.

From the Back Cover:

About the cover: Death Valley, one of the hottest places on Earth and home to more than 1000 species of plants, including more than 50 endemics, received record amounts of rain during the winters of 2004 and 2005. Through March of 2005, more than 8 inches of rain fell—4 times the yearly average of only 1.96 inches. Dormant seeds of various desert flowers germinated and flourished at record levels. This photograph was taken during one of these record rainfalls in March 2005. 

 

“One of the strengths of Masters/Ela is that the text is easily readable by undergraduate students who do not already have much background in environmental engineering and science. The writing style is clear and engaging.” Bruce E. Rittman, Arizona State University
 
“This is one of the clearest and best written textbooks I have used. The text is concise and informative with a minimum of technological jargon.... I know that I could not be as effective an educator without well written and thoughtful textbooks such as Introduction to Environmental Engineering and Science.” Gail Montgomery Brion, University of Kentucky
 
“The best features of this text are its readability and clarity. Secondly, its use of the mass balance approach, and carrying it throughout the rest of the book, is a great strength as well.” Gregory G. Wilbur, Oklahoma State University

Book Description Soft cover. Book Condition: New. 3rd Edition. The third edition of this book has been completely updated, modestly expanded and significantly strengthened-especially in the area of water quality engineering. The revisions have been made with the aim of providing students with the necessary tools and understanding of topics in chemistry, water treatment, air pollution and solid waste components. The text maintains its accessibility to non-engineering and hard science students as well. This blend of technical rigour and broad accessibility has been a goal of the previous editions and it continues to be an explicit objective of this edition too. Designed for use in undergraduate courses on environmental engineering and science. Page Extent: 720. This is an International edition. Territorial restriction maybe printed on the book. ISBN and Cover different from US edition, Contents same as US edition. 0. Bookseller Inventory # 266547
