About this book

The growing concern of European citizens for the quality of the environment is evident from the outcome of opinion polls and the level of media interest in environmental matters. This volume presents 60 indicators which give an overview of the pressure human activities are putting on on the environment. These are given in ten policy fields and cover not only the well-known problems of air pollution and climate change, but also more difficult areas such as bio-diversity and dispersion of toxic substances. The text contains these various "key features" including air pollution; climate change; marine environment and coastal zones; water pollution; and ozone layer depletion.
