About this book

Details how three fundamental issues lie at the base of every environmental process; i.e., the amount and form of available energy, the rate at which that energy can be exercised, and the configuration and dynamics of the system in which the process occurs.

A must in all libraries without any doubt... (Environment International) "Environmental systems and processes may be useful as a textbook for undergraduates or as an introductory reference for researchers." (International Jnl of Environmental Analytical Chemistry, Vol.80, No.302, 2001) "... refreshing ... an interesting journey..." (Chemistry & Industry, 5 August 2002)
