Environmental Physics,2nd Edition / Edition 2by Egbert Boeker, Rienk van Grondelle, Boeker
Pub. Date: 04/19/2000
Environmental Physics provides a comprehensive introduction to this increasingly important area of applied physics. Covering both atmospheric and soil physics, the reader is introduced to the physics that is needed to understand, analyse and prevent environmental problems. Whilst the rigor and methodology has been maintained in the Second Edition there has been a greater integration of physics with the natural environment throughout the text. More student exercises have been added to each chapter and more information has been provided to help the reader solve them. Some of the more challenging mathematics has been removed, and greater emphasis has been placed on the interpretation of spectra.
Carefully structured, topics are gradually introduced within each chapter, each of which conclude with student exercises and references.
Thoroughly updated throughout, with more modern examples and applications, and less abstract mathematicsMore student exercises along with increased help for solving them.
Greater emphasis on the interpretation of spectra.
