Collecting the insightful teaching experiences of an internationally respected group of researchers and lecturers, this undergraduate textbook will impact the future development of environmental studies and earth system science. Integrating the principles of the natural sciences, engineering, and economics as they pertain to the global environment, Earth Systems: Processes and Issues explains the complex couplings and feedback mechanisms linking the geosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and atmosphere. This volume uniquely combines topics in the physical and life sciences with engineering environmental systems, regional case studies, and the economic implications of environmental public policy decisions.
