Environmental impact assessments.

Ed. by George T. Halley and Yeram T. Fridian.

Nova Science Publishers


493 pages




The intended readership of the anthology is unclear, because the topics range from technical descriptions of chemical analysis to organizational and management aspects of research projects, environmental impacts of various processes, financial impacts of environmental reporting, and the role of environmental degradation on economic development efforts. Presumably they all have some connection, however tenuous, with predictions of the environmental impact of a construction project, which in many cases are now required by law before the project is approved. Among the topics are the sustainability assessment of energy policies and technologies, applying life-cycle engineering to material selection, environmental implications of erosive rainfall across the Mediterranean, environmentally friendly methods for extracting and determining organophosphorus and organochlorine pesticides, metals and sustainable development, and assessing the impact of environmental management systems on the financial performance of firms.
