This volume is designed to accommodate a broad interpretation of the term environmental studies, and to do so incorporates material from a wide range of disciplines. The interdisciplinary nature of environmental issues necessitates the inclusion of topics from physical sciences such as chemistry, physics, geology and biology alongside entries from atmospheric, engineering, earth and soil sciences. Since current environmental issues include a strong human element, entries from geography, demography, politics and economics also have their place.
