Because environmental problems are uncovered almost daily, both new regulations and technologies are continuously being developed to meet the challenges of solving them. As a result, the definitions for many past terms are revised and many new terms are generated each year. The Environmental Engineering Dictionary, 3rd Edition, combines both new and revised terms for a completely updated and comprehensive collection of more than 14,000 environmental definitions.

The 3rd Edition covers all the major environmental fields and includes exact and official EPA definitions for statue-related, regulation-related, and environmental engineering terms and for environmentally related science terms. Many of these terms include time-saving references to the definition's source, including the Code of Federal Regulations, the EPA, and the Department of Energy.

Choice Review

In the evolving science of environmental problems, the third edition of this work strives to upgrade definitions and incorporate new terms. Its advantage over some other works is the inclusion of regulatory and statutory information. Many entries have citations to environmental acts, CFR sections, and EPA reports--very useful for readers who want more detailed information. Comprehensive coverage of the vocabulary is provided, including hundreds of terms from textbooks and handbooks. Appendixes give environmental acronyms and references to laws, regulations, and reports. Recommended for academic libraries, undergraduates through researchers. T.
