about this item

Environmental studies encompasses a broad and sometimes complex range of subject areas because as a field of study it attempts to provide an understanding of the environment and how it influences and affects how well people live. Contributors discuss research methodologies and related applications used in environmental studies, the current status of environmental studies, and basic principles. Specific topics addressed include public meanings of science and the environment, the structured mental model approach, action research for coherently integrated sustainability policy design and implementation, energy return on investment and its implications for long-term prosperity, network analysis of industrial ecosystems, valuing estuarine and coastal ecosystems for storm protection, vulnerability assessments, and more.
