Environmental science books Study the environment and environmental science with this category of free eBooks. For instance, learn more about waste water treatment and atmospheric pollution.   Pollution prevention is a major global concern because of its harmful effects on people's health and the environment. Because we are all inhabitants on Earth, everyone is a stakeholder, and every person has something to contribute to advance effective pollution prevention and s:

Socialism Is Bad for the Environment Air and water pollution abounded. By one estimate, in the late s, particulate air pollution was 13 times higher per unit of GDP in Central and Eastern. The stress on our water environment as a result of increased industrialization, which aids urbanization, is becoming very high thus reducing the availability of clean water. Polluted water is of great concern to the aquatic organism, plants, humans, and climate and indeed alters the ecosystem. The preservation of our water environment, which is embedded in sustainable development, must be well Cited by: 5.

As managing environmental projects is a complex task with vast amounts of data, an array of regulations, and alternative engineering control strategies designed to minimize pollution and maximize the effect of an environmental program, this book helps . The importance of environmental science and environmental studies cannot be disputed. The need for sustainable development is a key to the future of mankind. Continuing problems of pollution, loss of forget, solid waste disposal, degradation of environment, issues like economic productivity and national security, Global warming.

Kneese --Air pollution and human health / Lester B. Lave and Eugene P. Seskin. pollution, contamination of the environment as a result of human activities. The term pollution refers primarily to the fouling of air, water, and land by wastes (see air pollution; water pollution; solid waste).

In recent years it has come to signify a wider range of disruptions to environmental quality. The Handbook of Research on Resource Management for Pollution and Waste Treatment is a collection of innovative research that examines waste and pollution Pollution methods that can be adopted at local and international levels and examines appropriate resource Pollution strategies for environmentally related issues.

Featuring coverage on a wide range of topics such as soil washing, bioremediation, and runoff handling, this book is ideally designed for environmentalists. Rebecca Altman is an American writer and sociologist. Her work explores the social history of chemistry, plastics, pollution and environmental legacy.

She holds a PhD in environmental sociology from Brown University, and serves on the Board of Directors of the Science and Environmental Health Network.

A single e-reader’s total carbon footprint is approximately kg, and for a book, this figure is somewhere in the range of kg; the book’s length and type can lead this figure to vary.

1 Using an average of kg, we can conclude it would take reading about books on an e-reader to reach a level in which the environmental impact is. This is a book about environmental engineering for nontechnical students. No attempt is made to cover air and water pollution, solid waste disposal or noise pollution in a rigorous way.

Marine debris. Marine debris is a persistent pollution problem that reaches throughout the entire ocean and Great Lakes. Our ocean and waterways are polluted with a wide variety of marine debris, ranging from tiny microplastics, smaller than 5 mm, to derelict fishing gear and abandoned ide, hundreds of marine species have been negatively impacted by marine debris, which can harm.

Aquaculture, Resource Use, and the Environment is a timely synthesis and analysis of critical issues facing the continued growth and acceptance of aquaculture practices and products.

Chapters look at the past, present, and future demands for food, aquaculture production, and tackle key issues ranging from environmental impacts of aquaculture to practical best management.

The availability and pollution of environmental resources is one of the main problems to which modern society faces. Water, the planet's most precious resource, is no stranger to this situation. Environmental Pollution welcomes high quality submissions on all aspects of environmental pollution and the mitigation measures related to ecosystem & human health.

Environmental pollution is the buildup and accumulation of toxic heavy metals in the air, water, and land that reduce the ability of the contaminated sites to support life.

The rise in human population density and anthropogenic activity has led to degradation of the Earth’s surface through misuse of environmental resources and improper disposal of wastes.Humans and the Environment: This 8-page mini-book teaches students how humans affect the environment in both positive and negative ways.

Topics include: types of pollution, reforestation, renewable/ nonrenewable resources, and environmental technologies.Pollution, also called environmental pollution, the addition of any substance (solid, liquid, or gas) or any form of energy (such as heat, sound, or radioactivity) to the environment at a rate faster than it can be dispersed, diluted, decomposed, recycled, or stored in some harmless g: resources.
