Reviews - What do customers think about Environmental Risk Assessment: Quantitative Measures, Anthropogenic Influences, Human Impact?

A Semi-Quantitative Approach to Environmental Analysis  Nov 12, 2007
This work includes discussion of topics as diverse as sinkholes, radiation in the environment, groundwater, river flooding, heavy-metal contamination, toxicity, mathematical models, etc. The indexing of topics in this book could be more comprehensive.

Information is provided on the Chernobyl disaster, along with discussion of the long-term challenges of radwaste storage (pp. 5, 8, 278-279). The authors provide an interesting description of bioremediation in the decontamination of soils from heavy metals (p. 129-on).

This book has a pronounced east-German focus. For example, there is discussion of the 2002 floods in eastern Germany and southwestern Poland (p. 81). This focus is not surprising, as both authors are (or were) at the University of Leipzig at the time of the publication of this work.
