McDonald -- Modeling nonpoint source pollution in an integrated system / Aziz Bouzaher & Jason Shogren -- Modeling environmental & trade policy linkages : the case of EU and US agriculture / David G. Abler & James S. Shortle -- Modeling ecosystem constraints in the Clean Water Act : a case study in Clearwater National Forest / Philip F. Roan & Wade E. Martin -- Costs & benefits of coke oven emission controls / Timothy J. Considine, Graham A. Davis & Donita Marakovits -- Modeling equilibria and risk under global environmental constraints / Alain Haurie & Richard Loulou -- Relative contribution of the enhanced greenhouse effect on the coastal changes in Louisiana / Imma J. Curiel, Jerzy A. Filar & Radoslaw Zapert -- The use of mathematical models in policy evaluation : comments / Kathleen A. Miller. Modeling Environmental Policy demonstrates the link between the physical models of the environment and the policy analysis in support of policy making. Each chapter addresses an environmental policy issue using a quantitative modeling approach. The volume addresses three general areas of environmental policy - non-point source pollution in the agricultural sector, pollution generated in the extractive industries, and transboundary pollutants from burning fossil fuels. The book concludes by discussing the modeling efforts and the use of mathematical models in general.
