A broad reference to the whole field of environmental science and related aspects. The first part presents basic knowledge needed to operate within environmental science. The second considers solutions to problems in the field at the local level. The third deals with particular environmental issues. Specific topics include chemistry, geology, analysis and modeling, concepts and policies of preventing pollution, toxicology and risk, remediation technologies, managing place-scale problems, sensitive environmental systems, and misconceptions about environmental pollution. The references range from none to ample. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
