Series: Environmental and Ecological Risk Assessment Series Volume: 4
320 pages, Col & b/w illus
As debates over how relative risk can be used to shape landscape-scale environmental management intensify, Regional-Scale Risk Assessment demonstrates the capabilities of RRM using nine case studies in the Pacific Northwest, Pennsylvania, Brazil, and Tasmania. The authors use a process of ranking and filters to interrelate different kinds of risks and illustrates how these relative risks are defined, mapped, and analyzed to determine remediation and management priorities. This book provides detailed descriptions for each step of RRM - from the determination of assessment goals to documentation, evaluation, and communication with decision-makers that can benefit practitioners in environmental risk assessment and related fields worldwide.
