About this book

Demonstrates the link between physical models of the environment and policy analysis in support of policy making. Each chapter addresses an environmental policy issue using a quantitative modeling approach. The volume addresses three general areas of policy: non-point source pollution in agriculture; pollution generated in the extractive industries; and transboundary pollutants from burning fossil fuels.
