Overview

More classics for environmental scientists from Wiley-Interscience¬Ö Trace Atmospheric Constituents Properties, Transformations, and Fates Edited by Stephen E. Schwartz Providing the only comprehensive coverage available of the chemical and physical processes involved in the formation of acid rain, this book details the transformation and deposition of atmospheric pollutants. Treats relevant laboratory and theoretical chemistry, field studies, and computer modeling methods, and includes coverage of the aqueous-phase chemistry of nitrogen oxides and sulfur dioxide, an analysis of soot and the analytical chemistry and health effects of inorganic and organic sulfur compounds present in ambient and industrial aerosols, and more. 1983 (0 471-87640-2) 547 pp. Systems Ecology An Introduction Howard Thomas Odum An integrated theoretical and applied introduction to systems ecology that uses energy diagrammatic language to explain basic concepts of systems, modelling, and simulation. Teaches energetics while at the same time dealing with the issues of organization, entropy, information, complexity, diversity, frequency, and power and the ways these determine the nature of real systems. Includes analog and digital computer modelling, enabling readers without prior programming experience to create computer models of ecological processes. 1983 (0 471-65277-6) 644 pp.

Dr. Legge received his PhD in plant genetics in 1971 from Oregon State University, Corvallis, and has been active in air pollution research on forest ecosystems since 1973. He was principal investigator of the ten-year multidisciplinary West White-court Case Study which investigated the long-term effects of sulphur gas emissions on the boreal forest in western Canada. Dr. Legge is currently principal investigator of biophysical aspects of the seven year Alberta Government-Industry/Acid Deposition Research Program which started in February 1985. Sagar V. Krupa is a Professor in the Department of Plant Pathology at the University of Minnesota in St. Paul. He is a member and past chairman of the TE-2 Ecological Effects Committee of the Air Pollution Control Association, and is at present a member of its Technical Council. He received his PhD from the Natural Sciences and Mathematics Faculty of the University of Uppsala, Sweden. Dr. Krupa has been conducting research and teaching in the field of air pollution since 1972.
