Environmental Science Deskbook solves this problem with plain-English explanations of scientific terms, acronyms, concepts, methods, and applications. The text enables you to be conversant with such acronyms as PAHs, PQLs, VOCs, BOD, and DNAPLS, and have a better understanding of environmental science concepts from fields such as statistics, physics, chemistry, and toxicology. This title helps you:
This resource also provides explanatory environmental legal practice examples so you can see the practical applications.
