Introduction to Applied Mathematics for Environmental Science (Hardback)David F. Parkhurst (author)
- We can order this
This book teaches mathematical structures and how they can be applied in environmental science. Each chapter presents story problems with an emphasis on derivation. For each of these, the discussion follows the pattern of first presenting an example of a type of structure as applied to environmental science. The definition of the structure is presented, followed by additional examples using MATLAB, and analytic methods of solving and learning from the structure.

From the reviews:
"It ... explains how basic tools of mathematical analysis can be efficiently used to study problems arising in environmental sciences. ... The text shall attract non-mathematical audience by clarity of exposition which concentrates mostly on ideas and techniques ... . Specifically tailored to the needs of undergraduate and graduate students in environmental sciences, this unique and skillfully written book shall help them to understand and master fundamental mathematical concepts and techniques used in the analysis of applied problems."
