Environmental Consequences and Management of Coastal Industries: Terms and Concepts: Estuarine and Coastal Sciences Series, cartea 3

Autor Michael Elliott, Andrew Wither
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 15 noi 2023
Environmental Consequences and Management of Coastal Industries: Terms and Concepts covers the engineering, natural and social sciences aspects related to coastal power plants and their operation and management. The book gives background to featured problems and solutions, making it relevant to power plants in all global situations and giving practitioners what they need to assess environmental consequences. In addition, the book indicates, defines and illustrates the terms and concepts used worldwide. This is important as engineers and scientists often have an imperfect understanding of the requirements of each other, and similar (in some cases identical) terms may have very different meanings.
Users will find this to be a simple and accessible guide to the terminology used and concepts covered. Individual entries are complete in themselves, but still cross referenced to other entries where additional information may be found. This provides quick-and-easy access to the required information.

  • Provides a unique approach that acts as a first-stop-shop for complementary interests with entries presented on separate pages
  • Presents multidisciplinary content, thus ensuring that different functions understand others’ priorities and concerns
  • Includes comprehensive content with wide ranging coverage written by experts with many decades of experience in environmental aspects of coastal power plans and other industries
