By: J Erickson
Explaining the interdependence of land, sea and air, this book looks at what pollution has done to the biosphere. The author discusses the increase of industrial contamination and its long-term consequences, from the holes in the ozone layer and clear-cutting of the rain forests to destroyed estuaries, desertification and depleted energy resourses. He suggests solutions, for example the need for remote satellite sensing of pollution for waste disposal cleanup, toxic waste removal and purification of rivers and lakes. Intended for the general reader or the student wishing to know more about how the environment works, this book aims to present technical details and scientific concepts in clear terms.
