About The Book Principles Of Environmental Science And Engineering
Book Summary:

Primarily intended as a text for undergraduate students of engineering for their core course in environmental studies, this book gives a clear introduction to the fundamental principles of ecology and environmental science and aptly summarizes the relationship between ecology and environmental engineering.
Divided into three parts, the book begins by discussing the biosphere, natural resources, ecosystems, biodiversity, and community health. Then it goes on to give detailed description on topics such as pollution and control, environmental management, and sustainable development. Finally, it focuses on environmental chemistry, environmental microbiology, and monitoring and analysis of pollutants.

Key Features:

Key words and summary at the end of each chapter provide the students an easy way of recapitulation.
A large number of figures illustrate the topics discussed.
Projects of environmental concern suggested at the end of the book enable the students to work in field projects. Besides engineering students, undergraduate students in other streams, practicing engineers and professionals would find the text immensely useful.
