Very thorough explanation of the "what's" and the "why's." I wish I'd bought the book instead of rented. A few "facts" are outdated, but as far as I can recall they all state when the fact refers to (i.e. Carbon Dioxide levels in the atmosphere may no longer be correct). I wish there was an electronic version of this text, but on the plus side it isn't too large or heavy to carry.
Nazaroff and Cohen-Alvarez: Where were you when I got interested in this field a long time ago? I used to buy several texts to cover the material ccvered in this great book. It combines information from various disciplines and provides a comprehensive resource that is invaluable. It covers the basics and takes the reader-user through to applications. It is obviously a valuable resource for engineering students and faculty as well as practitioners.
This is a recommended reading text in a 3rd yr Env. Science paper here in N.Z. I find it relevant and pertinent - highly recommended
Ms. Cohen and Mr. Nazaroff make environmental science spring to life in this comprehensive, fascinating work which will undoubtedly become the standard text for serious students of the environment worldwide.3 cheers! When is volume 2 coming???J. Cahn MSEE Stanford
This is a very poorly written textbook. It is difficult to navigate and has many mistakes.
