A new generation of interdisciplinary scientists is being trained to meet this need. These scientists have a massive area of operation, utilising tools from a plethora of traditional sciences. Essential Environmental Science brings together in a quantitative and easily applicable manner a large selection of these tools, providing for the first time a useable and self-contained set of methodologies for undergraduates in the environmental sciences. The book is in ten chapters with three appendices. Essential Environmental Science is an invaluable resource for students in the laboratory or field, as well as providing a substance reference source to supplement course work and research.
