Contents Notes
"The Encyclopedia of Environmental Science is a multidisciplinary reference work, crossing many fields of interest with a wide variety of scholarly and authoritative articles on mankind's environment. It provides information on the atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere and geosphere and is careful to focus on the connections between these realms and the Earth as a whole. Altogether, the Encyclopedia surveys basic environmental science and applied areas of study, and is drawn from the physical sciences, life sciences and social sciences." "The Encyclopedia is unique in presenting both a basic overview and detailed information on environmental topics and is suitable for the general scientific reader and university student as well as the specialized environmental scientist in academic institutions, research laboratories or private practice."--Jacket.
