... written in a down-to-earth engineering style for a wide audience and bookworms. The volume helps in the design, treatment and control of water and air pollution by using mathematical equations, measured relationships and software applications that help programming water and groundwater sources and process design techniques to control gaseous contaminants and radiation harms. Equally, the scientific content of the book has a very great rank as it is linked to computer applications. Surely, it appeals to technical readers, students, engineers, consultants, environmental and health doctors, civilians, industrialists, technologists, agriculturalists, urban planners, consulting companies and policy makers, as well as a wide range of general readers. -Dr. Eng. Elham Munir Baddour, University of Tishreen and University of Aleppo, Syria An introduction to Visual Basic.NET programming with examples from several environmental domains, including water resources management, air quality modelling and solid waste management. Suitable for freshmen, as it follows a step-by-step approach, it is especially suited for environmental engineering students with very little programming experience who want to do their first steps with Visual Basic. -I.N. Athanasiadis, Wageningen University, Netherlands Computer Modeling Applications for Environmental Engineers is one of the greatest books that helped many students, researchers, and engineers alike to manage the ever-growing environmental data. The book institutes a step by step guide to solving different environmental problems using normal and modelling approaches. In addition to normal chapters in the first edition, the Second Edition added two new valuable chapters on municipal solid waste collection, segregation, treatment, reuse, recycle and final disposal together with noise pollution aspects and control. This is one of the most enticing books that addresses both practical problems and a computer
