Descripción del producto

Reseña del editor

Appropriate for undergraduate engineering and science courses in Environmental Engineering. Balanced coverage of all the major categories of environmental pollution, with coverage of current topics such as climate change and ozone depletion, risk assessment, indoor air quality, source-reduction and recycling, and groundwater contamination.


About the cover: Death Valley, one of the hottest places on Earth and home to more than 1000 species of plants, including more than 50 endemics, received record amounts of rain during the winters of 2004 and 2005. Through March of 2005, more than 8 inches of rain fell--4 times the yearly average of only 1.96 inches. Dormant seeds of various desert flowers germinated and flourished at record levels. This photograph was taken during one of these record rainfalls in March 2005.

"One of the strengths of Masters/Ela is that the text is easily readable by undergraduate students who do not already have much background in environmental engineering and science. The writing style is clear and engaging." Bruce E. Rittman, Arizona State University
"This is one of the clearest and best written textbooks I have used. The text is concise and informative with a minimum of technological jargon.... I know that I could not be as effective an educator without well written and thoughtful textbooks such as Introduction to Environmental Engineering and Science." Gail Montgomery Brion, University of Kentucky
"The best features of this text are its readability and clarity. Secondly, its use of the mass balance approach, and carrying it throughout the rest of the book, is a great strength as well." Gregory G. Wilbur, Oklahoma State University

I used this textbook for a 300-level introduction to Environmental Engineering. The text is well written, with a strong and personable narrative, and explains the vast majority of the topics in a clear and accessible manner. Technical jargon is kept to a minimum, and this text could easily be read by a non-engineer. The text covers Water and Wastewater chemistry and treatment, water pollution and control, air pollution and control, solid waste treatment and disposal, and risk and risk management, as well as providing a solid background in the requisite chemistry and mathematics. College-level mathematics, including basic calculus, are included, although the textbook could be used in a non-calculus course without loosing any real continuity or coverage, by eliminating some derivations and a very few formulae. A basic college-level chemistry background is also extremely beneficial for Chapters 2 and 5 (Chemistry and Water topics).

However, the provided exercises appear to have been written for an earlier edition and not updated, as the sequence and phraseology differs from that of the text, which led to confusion on a few occasions. Also, no solutions are provided in the back of the book and no student solutions manual is available, which makes study from the text difficult. The text also covers far more material than can reasonably be covered in a one-semester course, so coverage and continuity is in large part up to the instructor's planning and topic selection.

All in all, I found this book to provide a broad, clear, and succinct introduction to environmental engineering. It was easy to read and stimulated interest in the various fields covered, and provides enough depth to make it a useful reference later on (I elected not to sell it back and use it as such, to much benefit in upper-level courses). Hence, I would strongly recommend this text for a sophomore or junior-level introduction to environmental engineers, and to students in such a course or looking to learn more about the field.

I recommend this book to every engineering student who has environmental course in their senior stage. This book gets you radically into the field of environmental engineering. Several examples and problems are available for you at the end of every chapter that drills you well into the subject. I wish I would have said right things about this product and I hope everybody can do the best in this course or similar courses.

The exercises are very well explained and the book follows a logical order in the chapters explained. The exercises and samples in metric values are very helpful for European students and professors.

The delivery was so fast. It is relatively nice as a used book. This is a paperback US edition, although it looks like the international one. (the international edition has some different end chapter exercises, which is a big problem if you use it as your textbook in class). Anyway this book does not have that problem, and considering its price and the customer service, I totally recommend it if you are taking this course!
