About this book

Natural resources support all human productivity. The sustainable management of natural resources is among the preeminent problems of the current century. Sustainability and the implied professional responsibility start here.

Sustainable Natural Resource Management uses applied mathematics familiar to undergraduate engineers and scientists to examine natural resource management and its role in framing sustainability. Renewable and nonrenewable resources are covered, along with living and sterile resources. Examples and applications are drawn from petroleum, fisheries, and water resources. Each chapter contains problems illustrating the material. Simple programs in commonly available packages (Excel, MATLAB) support the text.

The material is a natural prelude to more advanced study in ecology, conservation, and population dynamics, as well as engineering and science. The mathematical description is kept within what an undergraduate student in the sciences or engineering would normally be expected to master for natural systems. The purpose is to allow students to confront natural resource problems early in their preparation.

Contents

1. Sterile resources
2. Biomass
3. Stage-structured populations
4. The cohort
5. Water
6. Pollution

Biography

Daniel R. Lynch is the MacLean Professor of Engineering Sciences at Dartmouth College and Adjunct Scientist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Through the 1990s he served on the Executive Committee of the US GLOBEC Northwest Atlantic Program and co-founded the Gordon Research Conference in Coastal Ocean Modeling. He has published extensively on finite element methods in coastal oceanography and is co-editor of the AGU volume Quantitative Skill Assessment for Coastal Ocean Models and a related volume Skill Assessment for Coupled Physical-Biological Models of Marine Systems published as a special volume of the Journal of Marine Systems. In 2004 he wrote a graduate textbook titled Numerical Solution of Partial Differential Equations for Environmental Scientists and Engineers: A First Practical Course. At Dartmouth's Thayer School Dr Lynch developed the Numerical Methods Laboratory around the theme of interdisciplinary computational engineering. He pursues research at the intersection of advanced computation and large-scale environmental simulation. Current investigations focus on sustainability, natural resources, and professional education.
