"Environmentally Conscious Transportation provides a foundation for understanding and implementing methods for reducing the environmental impact of a wide range of transportation modes, from private automobiles (with a separate chapter on biofuels) to heavy trucks and buses to rail and public transportation systems to aircraft." "Environmentally Conscious Transportation is a reference for environmental, civil, transportation, mechanical, and industrial engineers, as well as public policy planners and officials. This book examines the societal costs of transportation in their broadest sense, both environmental and economic. References at the end of each chapter enable you to investigate individual topics in greater depth."--Jacket.
