Summary

Offersan authoritative perspective on both theory and practice:the authors are world renowned scientists and engineers with academic and practical experience in environmental matters. Focused on current environmental problems, their causes, effects, and solutions, this book explores the basic nature of the natural systems. Using a technical (quantitative) approach it maintains a broad perspective that appeals to all, but at the same time is useful to those proceeding further in environmental or sanitary engineering.In addition to the traditional topics of water quality, wastewater treatment, and air pollution, it explains the root causes of environmental problems and clarifies the relationships between natural systems and technology. Provides discussions onsolid and hazardous wastes, environmental management,andethics topics seldom found in a single text. Discussesthe changing role of technology e.g., "preventive technology" as an alternative to traditional "end-of-pipe" solutions. Considers recent data on thecauses of environmental problems e.g., population and economic growth, energy growth, natural environmental hazards, and environmental disturbances. Expands coverage of such topics as water consumption and drinking water standards; water pollution; scientific background e.g., atmospheric sciences,Cryptosporidium.
