About this book


Exercises in Environmental Physics covers the essential topics in university courses in environmental physics including:

-Energy and the environment

-Fluid mechanics

-Evapotranspiration, soil physics and groundwater hydrology


-Ocean and atmospheric physics

-The planet in space

This is the first book specifically devoted to exercises on the application of physics to describe the environment including the human impact. 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.
