Environmental language has become highly technical and specialized—like a foreign language that’s difficult to master and interweave into legal discussions. Environmental Science Deskbook (Environmental Law Series) 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 resource also provides explanatory environmental legal practice examples so you can see the practical applications.
