Overview

As one of the most challenging issues facing the transport sector, the need for this handbook devoted to the environmental impacts of transport is clear. It gives full treatment to all aspects of the subject:

- environmental concepts, both physical and economic
- key environmental concerns: global warming, air quality, noise, safety, amenity, and severance
- the role of fuel sources and new technology in reducing environmental externalities
- the contribution of each transport sector to energy consumption and emissions - appraisal, valuation, and impacts of externalities
- institutional and political settings and policies
- the role of environmental legislation
- special topics such as tourism, public attitudes, and gender

Each chapter was specially commissioned from an acknowledged world expert on the topic. Each offers an overview and useful insights to those familiar with the area as well as those new to it.
