Contents Notes
The scope of environmental physics -- Transport of heat, mass, and momentum -- Transport of radiant energy -- Radiation environment -- Microclimatology of radiation (i) -- Microclimatology of radiation (ii) -- Microclimatology of radiation (iii) -- Momentum transfer -- Heat transfer -- Mass transfer (gases and water vapor) -- Mass transfer (particles) -- Steady state heat balance (i) -- Steady state heat balance (ii) -- Transient heat balance -- Micrometeorology (i) -- Micrometeorology (ii). Environmental Physics provides a basis for understanding the complex responses of plants and animals to environmental change. International concern with climate change has made both politicians and the general public much more aware of the impact of local and global weather on all aspects of domestic life, industry and commerce. Environmental Physics has become more widely used by biologists, atmospheric scientists and climate modelers to specify interactions between surfaces and the atmosphere. This new edition contains further material on causes of global warming, applications of remote sensing, and the carbon and water cycles of crops and forests.
