Most books on environmental science focus on ecological or biological aspects of environmental conservation, often with a polemic agenda.
The physics, if covered at all, is generally superficial.
Using pertinent examples from the environment and the ways in which people interact with it, Physics of the Environment sets out to provide a cogent account of the underlying physical laws with a lucidity and rigor appropriate to an undergraduate course in the subject.
Students will gain an understanding of the physical concepts that govern the world as well as an appreciation of the technologies of power generation and transport, and the impact these have on the environment.
