Suitable for use in undergraduate Environmental Engineering courses found predominantly in Civil Engineering, but also in Chemical and Environmental Engineering. The book may also be used by a variety of professional engineers and scientists.
This new text provides an exceptionally thorough treatment of environmental engineering. The most thorough text of its kind, it encompasses environmental chemistry and biology, hydraulics, and pneumatics water treatment wastewater treatment, both conventional and advanced solid waste management air pollution control hazardous waste management and risk assessment noise pollution and control and environmental quality modeling. Through clear, straightforward writing, the authors provide incisive and insightful coverage while approaching the subject matter in a direct analytical manner. The text makes use of many practical, hands-on examples throughout to realistically demonstrate the applied nature of the field. This text, perhaps better than any other, combines comprehensive and authoritative coverage with current applications.
