About this book

This book looks at four topics in environmental science:

Oceans and Climate considers the effect of the ocean on climate. It looks in detail at the shape of the oceans, the properties of seawater, global ocean circulation and the implications for climate change.

Water Quality examines the properties and categories of the water we use in our everyday lives. It describes how water is abstracted from the environment, various methods of treatment, and the return of used water to the environment.

Eutrophication studies the biological effects of an increase in the concentration of nutrients on freshwater ecosystems, marine systems and on terrestrial vegetation. It looks at the causes of eutrophication and discusses methods of management.

Acid Rain concentrates on the role played by sulphur in acid deposition. It discusses and reviews acid rain research and investigates models used to predict its effects.

Throughout the book there are questions and activities for the reader to engage with. Answers and explanations are provided at the end of each section.
