Modelling of Pollutants in Complex Environmental Systems, Volume I

Mar 01 2009 Hardback

Now available as an eBook from Amazon>>

Environmental modelling has enjoyed a long tradition, but there is a defined need to continually address both the power and the limitations of such models, as well as their quantitative assessment. This book showcases modern environmental modelling methods, the basic theory behind them and their incorporation into complex environmental investigations. It highlights advanced computing technologies and how they have led to unprecedented and adaptive modelling, simulation and decision-support tools to study complex environmental systems, and how they can be applied to current environmental concerns.

With chapters contributed by global experts, the book covers different aspects of modelling air, water, soils and biological systems, and includes a colour section to enable greater comprehension of the topics discussed. It is essential reading for researchers in academia, industry and government-related bodies who have a vested interest in all aspects of environmental modelling.
