Environmental engineering is the application of science and engineering principles to protect and utilise natural resources and improve environmental quality to enable healthy ecosystems and comfortable habitation of humans. The aim of this introductory book is to provide a concise and comprehensive coverage on environmental engineering. The book content covers the fundamental concepts/theories and their applications in environmental engineering. The key topics include environment, ecosystems, remote sensing of environment, environmental risk, water supply, water pollution control, solid waste, air pollution, noise pollution, climate change - impacts, mitigation and adaptation.

Very nice book to have a basic insight into ecology. Nicely projected the effect of human activities on environment.
Very helpful as a supplemental reading materials.
Very well organized and written...It gets right to the point and doesn't beat you over the head with a lot of pseudo-important math....
