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

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.
