A Training Tool for the Environmental Risk Professional Environmental Risk Analysis: Probability Distribution Calculations defines the role that probability distributions play in risk analysis, and gives direction on how to measure and compare the magnitude of risk more efficiently. Designed for the practicing environmental engineer and scientist, this book clearly explains the key fundamentals, principles, and applications of probability distributions in environmental risk analysis. Based on years of research and the author’s own experience, the book provides nearly 200 illustrative examples utilizing probability distributions, as well as numerous solved problems that involve applications in the manufacturing, chemical, refining, power/utilities, travel/aerospace, pharmaceutical, anti-terrorism/military, and nanotechnology industries. It offers an in-depth discussion of the Weibull distribution, which describes failure rate as a function of time. It also details the author’s recent efforts to improve on Weibull’s work, and covers other continuous probability distributions that can apply to risk assessment/analysis. The book addresses environmental risk calculations that involve both discrete and continuous probability distributions. It focuses on discrete distributions that include binomial, multinomial, hypergeometric, and Poisson; and continuous distributions that include normal, lognormal, exponential, Weibull, F, and chi-square distribution. Includes a complete overview of environmental risk and covers environmental risk-related topics Presents a simplified approach to the industrial application of environmental risk analysis and probability distributions Offers a practical understanding of environmental risk analysis calculations involving probability distributions Environmental Risk Analysis: Probability Distribution Calculations provides a working knowledge of the principles and applications needed to solve real-world problems relevant to environmental risk analysis and probability distributions. This book serves as a valuable resource for practicing professionals in environmental science and engineering.

This book explores environmental and human risk problems caused by contamination, from the perspective of real world applications with quantitative procedures. It includes risk methods for environmental problems where data are sparse or fuzzy, and incorporates political, social and economic considerations in determining directions of remediation solutions for environmental contaminant problems. It highlights the impact of contaminants on human health – sometimes fatal - and the anthropogenic exacerbation of natural processes.

Fundamentals of Geoenvironmental Engineering: Understanding Soil, Water, and Pollutant Interaction and Transport examines soil-water-pollutant interaction, including physico-chemical processes that occur when soil is exposed to various contaminants. Soil characteristics relevant to remedial techniques are explored, providing foundations for the correct process selection. Built upon the authors' extensive experience in research and practice, the book updates and expands the content to include current processes and pollutants. The book discusses propagation of soil pollution and soil characteristics relevant to remedial techniques. Practicing geotechnical and environmental engineers can apply the theory and case studies in the book directly to current projects. The book first discusses the stages of economic development and their connections to the sustainability of the environment. Subsequent chapters cover waste and its management, soil systems, soil-water and soil-pollutant interactions, subsurface transport of pollutants, role of groundwater, nano-, micro- and biologic pollutants, soil characteristics that impact pollution diffusion, and potential remediation processes like mechanical, electric, magnetic, hydraulic and dielectric permittivity of soils. Presents a clear understanding of the propagation of pollutants in soils Identifies the physico-chemical processes in soils Covers emerging pollutants (nano-, micro- and biologic contaminants) Features in-depth coverage of hydraulic, electrical, magnetic and dielectric permittivity characteristics of soils and their impact on remedial technologies

Air Quality Compliance and Permitting Handbook provides a straightforward, easy-to-read, nonlegal explanation of the regulatory and technical concepts of air quality compliance, explaining how to effectively manage air compliance at a facility. Although the majority of the book is devoted to a wide general applicability, it also describes the actual permit submissions that are required under regulations (many of which end up being state requirements) and the technical and analytical approaches which are needed in preparing the information required in the permit applications. Useful topics include: Fundamental 1990 and previous Clean Air Act concepts, Permitting, Compliance Checklists and risk assessment methodologies.
