Environmental Issues: SCOPE Report 10.
Holdgate, Martin W., Ed.; White, Gilbert F., Ed.
The International Council of Scientific Unions formed the Scientific Committee on Problems of the Environment (SCOPE) to survey environmental changes, recommend international research programes, and suggest ways and means of lessening environmental hazards. In this publication, an attempt is made to identify to college students and interested professionals throughout the world those environmental issues and problems presently facing us or looming in the future. This publication not only closely examines environmental issues and problems but also inspects our research and problem solving approaches to these problems and the responsibilities of the scientific community. Just a few of the topics examined in this publication are environmental properties and processes; the role of science in environmental policy; biogeochemical cycles; pollutants in the environment; problem identification and monitoring; standard setting; and future actions.
