9780199272068: Introduction to Environmental Modelling

The global environment is a complex mix of interlinked processes, about which observation can tell us a great deal. But how can we use current observation to model future events, or to predict the consequences of scenarios that don't yet exist?

Environmental Modelling: An Introduction shows how modelling can be used to explain experimental observations, and how these observations - and the data gathered - can be extrapolated to help us understand new environments and processes, and to solve environmental problems.

The book begins by explaining why modelling is such a powerful experimental tool, before walking the reader through the process of constructing a model - what the key considerations are, and how different models should be used to probe different types of problem. It then illustrates how models are actively applied, before introducing a series of case studies to show how modelling has been used in real environmental and ecological studies.

Accompanied by an extensive Online Resource Center to support active, hands-on learning on the part of the student, Environmental Modelling: An Introduction is the ideal resource for any student who needs to develop a working understanding of modelling, and how to apply modelling in their own research.

Online Resource Center:
- Figures from the book available to download, to facilitate lecture preparation
- Interactive spreadsheets to encourage learning through hands-on experience

About the Author:


Dr Jo Smith is Senior Lecturer in Soil Modelling, and Pete Smith is Professor of Soils and Global Change, both in the School of Biological Sciences, University of Aberdeen.

Review:

So shall I recommend this book to our students? Yes, definitely. lecturers starting a new environmental modelling course would be well advised to consider following Smith & Smith, not least because of the excellent online resources available to registered adopters. The book definitely fills a gap in current texts on modelling, and the authors are to be congratulated. * European Journal of Soil Science, April 2008 *
