Environmental Physics. Egbert Boeker , Rienk van Grondelle. Environmental Physics provides a comprehensive introduction to this increasingly important area of applied physics. Covering both atmospheric and soil physics, the reader is introduced to the physics that is needed to understand, analyse and prevent environmental problems. Whilst the rigor and methodology has been maintained in the Second Edition there has been a greater integration of physics with the natural environment throughout the text. More student exercises have been added to each chapter and more information has been provided to help the reader solve them.

Demonstrates the use of physics for understanding processes in the environment, combining basic principles with their application to important questions in environmental science. Provides students with an awareness of the physics necessary to analyze, prevent or mitigate environmental problems. Environmental Physics, Second Edition presents a broad discussion of the physics which is used to analyse, prevent or reduce environmental problems. Both experimental and theoretical techniques are covered, including environmental spectroscopy, the generation of energy for human use, the transport of pollutants and the study of noise.
Importantly, the final chapter places these issues firmly in the context of human society. Environmental Physics, Second Edition is a highly topical and timely textbook which will be invaluable to all students of environmental physics or environmental science, at both the undergraduate and postgraduate level. Environmental scientists who need to know how physical methods can be used to help their work, will also find this book extremely useful.
The front cover shows an example of atmospheric monitoring by satellite. Reproduced by courtesy of the Royal Dutch Meteorological Institute. A feature of the book is the use of "excursions" on special topics that can be read separately and provide interest Each chapter contains useful students exercises with notes to help with their solution However, it is not just a book for students.
It usefully brings together and explains the basic physics of many processes that are encountered in the modern world and will be invaluable to those concerned with environmental matters who are reminded of the constraints imposed by an industrialised society.
