1 Review
Principles of Environmental Physics discusses the physical processes which determine how living organisms respond to their environment. The authors review the relevant basic physics and discuss radiation and heat exchange, and mass and momentum transfer; applying these principles to the heat balance of plants and animals and to the micrometereology of crops.

The new edition has been thoroughly revised, including further material on topics such as the effect of aerosol on solar radiation at the ground; transmission of radiation in crop stands; radiative properties; and remote sensing.

Thoroughly revised and up-dated edition of a highly successful textbook.

The latest information concerning the large scale effects of the breakdown of the ozone layer on plants and animals if fully dicussed.

Modern techniques, particularly remote sensing via satellites, are fully discussed.
