About this book

Understanding pollution, its behaviour and impact is becoming increasingly important, as new technologies and legislation continually lower the tolerable levels of pollutants released into the environment. Introduction to Pollution Science draws upon sections of the authors' previous text Understanding our Environment and reflects the growing trend of a more sophisticated approach to teaching environmental science at university. This new revised book discusses the basics of environmental pollution drawing upon chemistry, physics and biological sciences.

The book, written by leading experts in the field, covers topics including pollution in the atmosphere, the world's waters and soil and land contamination. Subsequent sections discuss methods of investigating the environment, the impact of pollution on human health and ecological systems, and institutional mechanisms for pollution management. Each section includes worked examples and questions and is aimed at undergraduates studying environmental science, but will also be useful for others seeking knowledge of the field.

Media reviews
This is an interesting and highly informative book. The chapters on water, soil and sludge contamination and environmental management deserve special mention. -- Chemistry & Industry, 27 August 2007 (Prabhu Kulkarni) Chemistry and Industry Suited to students on degree courses in environmental science and pollution studies at both undergraduate and taught postgraduate levels. Its wider pollution-oriented content will also be of value to chemistry students. Some chapters, such as those on the atmosphere, investigating the environment and ecological and health effects of chemical pollution, have been modified and updated. Others, such as the chapters on the world's waters, which replaces separate chapters on the oceans and freshwater, and soils and land contamination, have been written by new authors. Each chapter contains case studies anad is now extensively referenced. -- Education in Chemistry, September 2007, 159 (Hugh Flowers) Education in Chemistry
