Environmental Engineering Science

Front Cover
John Wiley & Sons, Nov 20, 2000 - Technology & Engineering - 720 pages
This book covers the fundamentals of environmental engineering and applications in water quality, air quality, and hazardous waste management. It begins by describing the fundamental principles that serve as the foundation of the entire field of environmental engineering. Readers are then systematically reintroduced to these fundamentals in a manner that is tailored to the needs of environmental engineers, and that is not too closely tied to any specific application.
