Handbook of Environmental Health, Fourth Edition

Herman Koren and Michael S. Bisesi (2003)

For over 20 years, the two-volume Handbook of Environmental Health has been a standard reference. Now it has been completely revised and expanded to reflect the latest developments and discoveries in this constantly changing and evolving field.

Focusing on factors generally associated with the indoor environment, Volume 1 of the fourth edition begins by providing a significant understanding of basic new environmental issues, as well as

* energy, practical microbiology, and chemistry;

* risk assessment;

* emerging infectious diseases;

* recent laws;

* emerging microorganisms;

* toxicology;

* epidemiology;

* human physiology; and

* the effects of the environment on humans.

The remainder of the chapters in this volume discuss a variety of indoor environmental issues, including food safety, food technology, insect and rodent control, indoor air quality, hospital environments, home environments, injury control, pesticides, industrial hygiene, and instrumentation.

Volume II focuses on factors generally associated with the outdoor environment. It addresses issues such as

* toxic air pollutants and air quality control;

* risk assessment;

* solid and hazardous waste problems and controls;

* safe-drinking-water problems and standards;

* onsite and public sewage problems and control;

* plumbing hazards;

* air, water, and solid waste programs;

* technology transfer;

* geographic information systems and mapping;

* bioterrorism and security;

* disaster emergency health programs; and

* ocean dumping.
