This guide to environmental chemistry covers major topical issues, including the greenhouse effect, the ozone layer, pesticides, and air and water pollution. The text offers an active problem-solving approach, with exercises incorporated throughout each chapter.
An unbiased account of current environmental issues, with an in-depth explanation of the underlying chemical principles that determine the nature of the issues in question. It identifies major environmental issues in the areas of energy, atmosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere, and analyzes the chemical basis of those issues and the links between socio-economic indicators and impacts on the environment.
The text bridges the "gap" between the fundamental chemistry of the earth's atmosphere and "real world" examples of its application to the development of sound scientific risk assessments and associated risk management control strategies for both tropospheric and stratospheric pollutants.
This book is about the atmosphere and mankind's influence on it. It discusses the geochemical, biological and maritime sources of the trace gases and examines the sources of air pollution and its effects.
This text establishes chemical principles on a need-to-know basis within a contextual framework of significant social, political, economic and ethical issues. Global warming, alternate fuels, nutrition, and genetic engineering are examples of issues that are covered in CIC.
