Currently, 1.4 million engineers in the United States are involved with some aspect of environmental assessment and that number is expected to increase in the next decade. This work is a comprehensive reference to guide engineers as well as policy makers and business administrators through the bewildering thicket of regulation, legislation and environmental audits and impact statements. The authors offer proven techniques for analyzing the environmental impact of a proposed or ongoing project. They outline activities that affect the environment, showing how to measure the variables and how to collect and evaluate the data. They also explain how to prepare, process and review environmental assessment documents. Numerous case studies complete the coverage in this volume.
