A discussion on the greenhouse effect without considering the matter of energy would be incomplete; a review of nuclear energy without looking at waste disposal solutions would be insufficient. Above all, addressing environmental issues without examining the interpretation, content, and context of development would be futile. Editors Stavros Poulopoulos and Vassilis Inglezakis expound on this premise of human activities and their ongoing and dialectic interactions with the environment in Environment and Development: Basic Principles, Human Activities, and Environmental implications. Through the use of recent data and case studies, the book explains the connection between human development and the associated reactions in the environment along with engineering solutions proposed to achieve a harmonic coexistence of man and nature. Sustainable development, related research findings, and the relevant international environmental policies are recurring topics throughout. Key features: Discusses the various interpretations of the development concept as well as alternative pathways to sustainable development, Analyzes environmental issues and proposes solutions grounded in recent research findings, Presents tabulated data and figures to support the analysis and explain the issues presented, Addresses global environmental policy issues, Provides case studies covering many topics of current interest, Includes a discussion of extraterrestrial environment as one of the distinctive topics of the book Book jacket., Environment and Development: Basic Principles, Human Activities, and Environmental Implications focuses on the adverse impact that human activities, developments, and economic growth have on both natural and inhabited environments. The book presents the associated problems, along with solutions that can be used to achieve a harmonic, sustainable development that provides for the co-existence of man and natural life. Chapters provide detailed information on the atmospheric environment, aquatic environment, soil environment, natural environment, urban environment, energy environment, extraterrestrial environment, and the relationship between the environment and development. In addition, this comprehensive book presents the latest research findings and trends in global environmental policy for each issue. Offers a discussion of extraterrestrial environment and waste in earth orbit as one of the distinctive topics of the book Addresses global environmental policy issues and policies Presents tabulated data to support the analysis and explain the issues presented Includes case studies covering many topics of current interest Analyzes environmental issues and proposes solutions grounded in recent research findings Discusses the various interpretations of the development concept as well as alternative pathways to sustainable development, For the laymen (non scientist-Why should he/she buy this book?) Human activities and development focusing on economic growth have an adverse impact on natural and inhabited environment day after day. In this book, all aspects of environment and the associated problems are presented along with solutions proposed to achieve an harmonic co-existence of man and natural life as well as sustainable development. Specifically, following an introductory chapter, the book contains the following sub-chapters: Atmospheric Environment, Aquatic Environment, Soil Environment, Natural Environment, Urban Environment, Energy and Environment, Extraterrestrial Environment and Environment and Development. Latest research findings and the trend of the global environmental policy for each issue are utilised in order to provide the most updated information to the reader. For the user (scientist/expert-why should he/she buy the book?) Human activities and development focusing on economic growth have an adverse impact on natural and inhabited environment day after day. It is evident today that the various components of environment are interconnected to each other and so interrelated that any attempt to speak for any environmental sector as if in a tube is meaningless. For example, presenting the greenhouse effect without fully developing the matters of energy is useless. In this book, the implications of these interconnections are discussed in detail, whereas all aspects of environment and the associated problems are presented along with solutions proposed to achieve an harmonic co-existence of man and natural life as well as sustainable development. Following an introductory chapter, the book contains the following sub-chapters: Atmospheric Environment, Aquatic Environment, Soil Environment, Natural Environment, Urban Environment, Energy and Environment, Extraterrestrial Environment and Environment and Development. All the matters are seen from the point of view of sustainable development and according to the latest research findings. The various problems are interconnected to each other and the relevant international environmental policy is presented in each chapter. Global environmental policy issues will be addressed Most scientific texts does not relate context with environmental policy, failing thus to address to environment-related professionals Many Tables and Figures (exact number difficult to be estimated at this stage) Simple approach avoiding long analyses and facilitating ease of reading Special Cases sought in all topics Deeper understanding of underlying phenomena and relationships Extraterrestrial Environment issues will be presented Presentation of a totally new subject for relevant books
