A unified presentation of environmental model development,implementation, and testing

Integrated Environmental Modeling teaches modeldevelopment, model implementation, and model testing skills in aunified manner, crosscutting the three "media" comprisingenvironmental systems—air, water, and soil—by focusingon parallels and similarities between them, and introducing a newgeneration of multimedia models. No other single volume offerscomprehensive coverage of chemical transport and fate in all threeenvironmental media, including the resulting impacts on thebiosphere and human health, with a focus on the fundamentalprocesses underlying environmental modeling.

Integrated Environmental Modeling provides broad-basedtraining in the development of pollutant transport and fate modelsin air, water, and soil, with a focus on five essentialcompetencies:

  • Understanding the fundamental process principles that governcontaminant transport and transformations in multimediaenvironments, emphasizing the parallels and links between differentmedia
  • Learning model development skills, starting from the simplestconceptual models and building more complex and realistic modelsthat couple component process modules at the appropriate spatialand temporal scales of resolution
  • Using statistical methods and data sources to estimate inputparameters and characterize model sensitivity and uncertainty
  • Gaining hands-on experience with computer-aided implementationand evaluation of fate and transport models using realistic casestudy examples
  • Applying fate and transport models to evaluate pollutantinteractions with the biosphere, particularly in human exposuremodeling and health risk assessment

Complete with case studies, Integrated EnvironmentalModeling is a valuable, single-source tool for senior andgraduate students in environmental science and engineering courseson pollutant transport, remediation, and risk assessment, and anessential reference text for professionals in industry, consulting,and government agencies responsible for environmental assessmentand risk analysis.
