"This is the first book specifically devoted to exercises on the application of physics to describe the environment including human impact on it. It is a valuable tool for students to develop skills in the manipulation of physical concepts and methods while learning environmental science. The exercises are drawn from the author's teaching experience and the need for stimulating practice problems in various environmental physics courses. A chapter on mathematical methods used in the book supplements the material."--Jacket.
