The science of water : concepts & applications by Frank R Spellman( Book )

39 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in English and held by 629 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Science of Water: Concepts and Applications puts the spotlight on the critical importance of water's role in future sustainability. Clearly written and user-friendly, this timely revision builds on the remarkable success of the first edition by updating, reorganizing, and revising the original to include the latest information and research results. The common thread woven through the fabric of this presentation is water resource utilization and its protection. It covers topics such as water sources, water hydraulics, chemistry, biology/microbiology, ecology, water quality, pollution, biomonitoring, sampling, testing, reuse, and treatment. The author examines the impact of human use, misuse, and reuse of fresh water and wastewater on the overall water supply." "Authoritative, informative, and up to date, the book blends real-world experience with theoretical models. This work provides the valuable insight all water/wastewater practitioners need and includes important information for policymakers and anyone else tasked with making decisions concerning water resource utilization."--Jacket

In defense of science : why scientific literacy matters by Frank R Spellman( Book )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today, only a few people outside of the scientific community are conversant with the tradition of science and its many breakthroughs. The rest are scientifically illiterate. So say Frank R. Spellman and Joni Price-Bayer, authors of In Defense of Science: Why Scientific Literacy Matters. This book explains why ordinary citizens need to have an understanding of science, its methods, and its groundbreaking discoveries. The authors introduce the most basic scientific concepts in accessible and straightforward language. Along the way they debunk several misconceptions of science and scientists, and arrive at a view of science as an integral part of society, policy, and everyday life. The book begins with an introduction to science and its basic concepts, including a brief and entertaining history of science and scientific discoveries, before taking on current views of science in society. It surveys the many sources of our ideas of science, including pop culture, classics of literature, news media, and political discourse. Much of the information from these sources tends to mislead, and the only way to guard against such misinformation is to become scientifically literate, and promote scientific literacy in society. The book therefore delves into the reasons that so many people do not understand basic scientific principles and do not keep up with scientific breakthroughs, and finishes by examining the current state of science education. It includes many resources for further reading, and is presented in an engaging and entertaining way. It offers much food for thought for anyone concerned with science in today's world."--Back cover of book

It covers air resource utilization and air protection, contains regulatory updates related to air quality, and provides an update on pollution control technologies. In addition to the discussion of numerous mitigation and remediation procedures, this authoritative resource includes an expanded section on the fundamentals of air chemistry and physics making it an indispensable text for those tasked with compliance to air pollution laws. The common thread woven through the fabric of this text is air resource utilization and its protection."--BOOK JACKET
The science of environmental pollution by Frank R Spellman( Book )

16 editions published between 1999 and 2017 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Science of Environmental Pollution, Second Edition asks questions about environmental pollution: What is it? What is its impact? What are the causes and how can we mitigate them? But more than this, the second edition stimulates new ways to think about the issues and their possible solutions." "Simply put, studying pollution without science is analogous to attempting to cook without being able to read a recipe, measure ingredients correctly, or monitor the progress of that which is cooking. Conversely, studying pollution through science affords the opportunity to maintain a healthful, life-sustaining environment. This second edition presents common-sense approaches and practical examples based on scientific principles, models, and observations, but keeps the text lively and understandable to scientists and non-scientists alike." "Environmental issues continue to attract attention at all levels. Some sources say that pollution is the direct cause of climate change; others deny that the possibility even exists. This text sorts through the hyperbole, providing concepts and guidelines that not only aid in understanding the issues, but equip you with the scientific rationale required to make informed decisions."--Jacket
