Environmental Engineering Dictionary is a comprehensive reference of more than 14,000 technical and regulatory engineering terms that are used in pollution control technologies, monitoring, risk assessment, sampling and analysis, quality control, and environmental engineering and technology. Not only are many newly created terms included in this edition, but the original definitions have also been thoroughly revised to keep pace with the rapid changes in technology. Fuel cell technology terms, special definitions that focus on environmental management systems, and basic environmental calculations have also been added to this edition. Users of this dictionary will find exact and official Environmental Protection Agency definitions for environmental terms that are statute related, regulation related, science related, and engineering related, including terms from the following legal documents: Clean Air Act; Clean Water Act; CERCLA; EPCRA; Federal Facility Compliance Act; Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act; FIFRA; Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendment; OSHA; Pollution Prevention Act; RCRA; Safe Drinking Water Act; Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act; and TSCA. The terms included in this dictionary feature timesaving citations to the definitions' sources, including the Code of Federal Regulations, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Department of Energy. A list of the reference source documents is also included.

This reference manual provides a list of approximately 300 technical terms and phrases common to environmental and civil engineering which non-English speakers often find difficult to understand in English. The manual provides the terms and phrases in alphabetical order, followed by a concise English definition, then a translation of the term in Portuguese and, finally, an interpretation or translation of the term or phrase in Portuguese. Following the Portuguese translations section, the columns are reversed and reordered alphabetically in Portuguese with the English term and translation following the Portuguese term or phrase. The objective is to provide a technical term reference manual for non-English speaking students and engineers who are familiar with Portuguese, but uncomfortable with English and to provide a similar reference for English speaking students and engineers working in an area of the world where the Portuguese language predominates.

Water and waste management covers the design, building and operation of plants for water treatment and supply, sewerage, wastewater treatment and disposal, and solid waste treatment and disposal. Since the last edition in 2002 there has been an increasing importance on the issues reflecting climate change. This is particularly important when the result of this change must be ‘managed’ and ‘controlled’ to maintain an amenity such as water supply. This new edition includes many new entries on the topics of stormwater management and flood management, as well as the new EU Directives that cover this field. With over 7000 terms, this dictionary encompasses the most recent terminology on water and waste management. It is a handy reference for consultants, contractors and professional engineers as well as academics and students who need a quick definition to technical terms. * Provides a handy reference for consultants, contractors and professional engineers as well as academics and students who need a quick definition to technical terms. *References US, UK and European standards, legislation and spelling providing a global relevance *Offers detailed coverage of the terminology of Stormwater management and flood management not found elsewhere

Like most technical disciplines, environmental science and engineering is becoming increasingly specialized. As industry professionals focus on specific environmental subjects they become less familiar with environmental problems and solutions outside their area of expertise. This situation is compounded by the fact that many environmental science related terms are confusing. Prefixes such as bio-, enviro-, hydra-, and hydro- are used so frequently that it is often hard to tell the words apart. The Environmental Engineering Dictionary and Directory gives you a complete list of brand terms, brand names, and trademarks - right at your fingertips.

The books currently available on this subject contain some elements of physical-chemical treatment of water and wastewater but fall short of giving comprehensive and authoritative coverage. They contain some equations that are not substantiated, offering empirical data based on assumptions that are therefore difficult to comprehend. This text brings together the information previously scattered in several books and adds the knowledge from the author's lectures on wastewater engineering. Physical-Chemical Treatment of Water and Wastewater is not only descriptive but is also analytical in nature. The work covers the physical unit operations and unit processes utilized in the treatment of water and wastewater. Its organization is designed to match the major processes and its approach is mathematical. The authors stress the description and derivation of processes and process parameters in mathematical terms, which can then be generalized into diverse empirical situations. Each chapter includes design equations, definitions of symbols, a glossary of terms, and worked examples. One author is an environmental engineer and a professor for over 12 years and the other has been in the practice of environmental engineering for more than 20 years. They offer a sound analytical mathematical foundation and description of processes. Physical-Chemical Treatment of Water and Wastewater fills a niche as the only dedicated textbook in the area of physical and chemical methods, providing an analytical approach applicable to a range of empirical situations Contents Introduction Characteristics of Water and Wastewater Quantity of Water and Wastewater Constituents of Water and Wastewater Unit Operations of Water and Wastewater Treatment Flow Measurements and Flow and Quality Equalizations Pumping Screening, Settling, and Flotation Mixing and Flocculation Conventional Filtration Advanced Filtration and Carbon Adsorption Aeration, Absorption, and Stripping Unit Processes of Water and Wastewater Treatment Water Softening Water Stabilization Coagulation Removal of Iron and Manganese by Chemical Precipitation Removal of Phosphorus by Chemical Precipitation Removal of Nitrogen by Nitrification-Denitrification Ion Exchange Disinfection

Environmental science and engineering is a truly interdisciplinary field. From its origins in public health practice, concern for the well-being of our environment has embraced areas as diverse as chemistry, the earth sciences, biology, engineering and law. The specialist language of any discipline can be a barrier to co-operation and understanding in solving environmental problems. The Dictionary of Environmental Science and Engineering explains many important specialist environmental terms in a clear and concise way. It also provides an extensive guide to the many acronyms encountered in environmental science. The Dictionary of Environmental Science and Engineering will be a valuable reference tool for anyone working, whether directly or indirectly, with the environment. The dictionary describes many of the acts, organisations and requirements related to the legislation of the environment, giving particular emphasis to those of the United States of America. Thus, it will be particularly useful to those seeking a greater understanding of the US perspective on the environmental question.
