内容简介

  1. For the laymen (non scientist-Why should he/she buy this book?)
  2. Human activities and development focusing on economic growth have an adverse impact on natural and inhabited environment day after day. In this book, all aspects of environment and the associated problems are presented along with solutions proposed to achieve an harmonic co-existence of man and natural life as well as sustainable development. Specifically, following an introductory chapter, the book contains the following sub-chapters: Atmospheric Environment, Aquatic Environment, Soil Environment, Natural Environment, Urban Environment, Energy and Environment, Extraterrestrial Environment and Environment and Development. Latest research findings and the trend of the global environmental policy for each issue are utilised in order to provide the most updated information to the reader.

  3. For the user (scientist/expert-why should he/she buy the book?)

Human activities and development focusing on economic growth have an adverse impact on natural and inhabited environment day after day. It is evident today that the various components of environment are interconnected to each other and so interrelated that any attempt to speak for any environmental sector as if in a tube is meaningless. For example, presenting the greenhouse effect without fully developing the matters of energy is useless. In this book, the implications of these interconnections are discussed in detail, whereas all aspects of environment and the associated problems are presented along with solutions proposed to achieve an harmonic co-existence of man and natural life as well as sustainable development. Following an introductory chapter, the book contains the following sub-chapters: Atmospheric Environment, Aquatic Environment, Soil Environment, Natural Environment, Urban Environment, Energy and Environment, Extraterrestrial Environment and Environment and Development. All the matters are seen from the point of view of sustainable development and according to the latest research findings. The various problems are interconnected to each other and the relevant international environmental policy is presented in each chapter.

Global environmental policy issues will be addressed

Most scientific texts does not relate context with environmental policy, failing thus to address to environment-related professionals

Many Tables and Figures (exact number difficult to be estimated at this stage)

Simple approach avoiding long analyses and facilitating ease of reading

Special Cases sought in all topics

Deeper understanding of underlying phenomena and relationships

Extraterrestrial Environment issues will be presented

Presentation of a totally new subject for relevant books
