Item description for DARE's Dictionary of Environmental Sciences and Engineering (Developments in Arid Regions Research Series,) by A.M.O. Mohamed...
This book deals with a complex task, namely developing a trilingual glossary (English, French and Arabic) covering such an all-encompassing domain; the environment, a domain whose boundaries can hardly be defined. The aims of this book were to contribute to the general current trend aimed at achieving international harmony in such a vital field as the environment by providing a means of unambiguous professional communication, facilitate technical translation and other forms of cross-cultural communication, provide accurate definitions, descriptions, explanatory notes and other relevant discourse, aggregate information about environmental concepts and aspects from many controlled vocabularies and classifications, help organize the metadata contributed by numerous sources , and ultimately establish and further develop cooperation amongst English, French and Arabic speaking environmentalists (individuals as well as groups / organizations / universities / etc.) This comprehensive dictionary is an important reference material to all those who are interested in environmental sciences, health, policy, economics, management and engineering. The dictionary includes over 5,000 up-to-date entries and their explanations in a detailed manner.
