`...if you need to know the meaning, or usage, of a word in material where you are not an expert, and particularly in recent research articles, the Dictionary could prove invaluable.' - Geophysics Since the first edition of the Dictionary of the Environment appeared in 1977, concern about the quality of the environment has led to intensified scientific research, national and international legislation, and the establishment of many new institutions at national, international, and intergovernmental level. University degrees are now awarded in environmental science and the subject features in many courses undertaken by students who need to understand the environmental implications of the work they hope to do. This fourth edition reflects these developments and includes more terms rrelevant to environmental science. More major 'incidents' have been added to those introduced in the third edition. The work has been completely revised. Every entry and cross-reference has been scrutinized thoroughly and many have been rewritten. This new edition is an invaluable reference for all who wish to engage in formal studies of the environment and to supporters of environmental causes.
