The Canter text appeals mainly to Civil Engineering students taking course work in environmental assessment practice or impact assessment, usually taught at the junior/senior level as a popular elective. Some chemical and environmental engineers take the course as well. The author has specifically beefed up and improved the chapters on biological, cultural, and socioeconomic environmental factors. The book continues to emphasise both production and assessment aspects of environmental factors, i.e., air, water, and noise, together with some interesting case studies. The latest governmental methodologies and Environmental Impact Studies have been included in this timely revision.
`Starts with chapters on the National Environmental Policy Act, planning and managing an EIA, impact identification methods, description of the environment, and environmental impacts. The main body of the book consists of chapters on air, surface water, groundwater, noise, biological, cultural, visual and socio-economic impacts.'
