Contemporary Issues in Environmental Engineering and Planning. Jain, Ravi Ravi Jain is Dean and Professor of the School of Engineering and Computer Science, University of the Pacific, Stockton, California.

This is one of the most comprehensive books on complex subjects of environmental engineering assessment and planning. Addressing these issues requires an understanding of technical, economic, and policy perspectives; based upon extensive research and practical experience of the authors, these perspectives are thoughtfully and clearly presented.

Covered in this book are subjects related to environmental engineering and planning which include environmental laws and regulations, international perspectives on environmental analysis engineering and planning, economic and social impact analysis, public participation, and energy and environmental implications of major public works and private projects. Contemporary issues ranging from climate change to ecorisk and sustainability are covered in a special section as well.

Under Contemporary Challenges are environmental issues that have received considerable public support and concern; they include: climate change, acid rain, deforestation, endangered species, biodiversity, ecorisk, cultural resources, and sustainability. For most of these issues, there are scientific agreements and disagreements; there are many uncertainties, thus views differ widely. These topics are discussed in considerable detail. Notwithstanding uncertainties and differing views on such topics, all of this information is put in a policy context such that progress towards addressing these contemporary challenges can be made while consensus on the nature and extent of the problem and resultant solutions are being developed.

The book provides considerable information about many timeless issues. These issues range from resources needed for sustaining the quality of life on the planet: air resources to natural resources. Specifically covered are: air, water, land, ecology, sound/noise, human aspects, economics, and resources. For each of these areas, some of the key elements are described so that one can effectively manage complex environmental engineering and planning requirements. Each of the elements are clearly defined and other information, such as how human activities affect the element, source of affects, variable to be measured, how such variables can be measured, data sources, and evaluation and interpretation of data, etc. are provided. Material presented provides a rich source of information so the reader can efficiently and effectively use it to make meaningful environmental engineering, planning, and management decisions.

Help with every aspect of analyzing the environmental implications of a projectComplete coverage of current approaches, practices, procedures, documentations, regulations, and issues related to environmental engineering and planningStep-by-step directions for preparing environmental impact analysis, and environmental reportsValuable expert advice on international perspectives, public participation, social and environmental impactsA comprehensive write-up on contemporary issues ranging from climate change to sustainabilityA comprehensive description and analysis of timeless issues ranging from air resources to natural resources

The Handbook of Environmental Engineering Assessment, Strategy Planning, and Management by Rave Jain and others is an excellent resource for practicing engineers and also for instructional purposes at college level environmental engineering applications. The book contains a very good review of environmental laws and regulations with a particular focus on the various elements and considerations in the national environmental policy act. It includes insights on state environmental policy act's as well as guidance from the Council on environmental quality and judicial reviews. The book also provides examples and guidance on the development of environmental documents and compliance with CEQ regulations including a number of case study discussions. Step-by-step guidance is provided for the development of the various elements and environmental assessment from a planning standpoint as well as environmental assessment methodologies and a discussion of future directions in environmental assessments. Guidelines are also discussed for the process of reviewing environmental impact statements including approaches to systematic review processes for EIS. International aspects of environmental assessment engineering and planning are presented on a global basis including the Asia-Pacific region, Latin America, Canada, Europe and India. The chapter on economic and social impact analysis includes a discussion of economic models social impact assessment methods data collection sources and the important aspect of environmental justice. The importance of public participation in the environmental impact assessment process from its beginning to the major role it has played in more current public policy issues. The book describes the importance of participation in developing regulations, methods for effective public participation programs and the benefits that can come out of well-planned public participation programs. This chapter also includes a discussion of the impact of the digital revolution on public participation and how to leverage the Internet capability to support efforts in public participation. The relationship between the environment and energy is described from the standpoint of energy costs of pollution, fuel alternatives and developments strategies, recycling of materials and other aspects that benefit the energy equation and protect the environment. The last chapter addresses contemporary issues in in environmental assessment to include climate change, acid rain, biodiversity, cumulative impacts, and indirect impacts as well as a number of other subjects. Each chapter concludes with a discussion and study questions that are very helpful in underscoring the learning objectives of the chapter.

Overall this is an excellent book that makes an outstanding handbook for the practicing professional. It is also a very good textbook for use in the college classroom for courses related to environmental impact statements and environmental assessment fundamentals. I will be using it in my environmental assessment classes and hazardous waste management classes in the future.

This review is from: Handbook of Environmental Engineering Assessment: Strategy, Planning, and Management
This book provides a wealth of information across a very broad range of environmental assessment topics and considerations. Though environmental assessment is a complex topic, it is presented here in an accessible way; the material is logically ordered, broken into understandable questions and issues, and written in plain English. The text introduces readers to the potentially confusing array of environmental statutes in a context that is useful and not overwhelming, by covering key legal standards which assessors are likely to encounter. The authors provide practical step-by-step advice on how to conduct assessments that meet statutory and policy needs, warning against short-cuts that can lead to delays or legal challenges. They use brief case studies to further explain and illustrate requirements and best practices. This comprehensive text is clearly aimed at environmental assessors and environmental engineers primarily, for whom it provides a handy reference tool. But its broad coverage and clear explanations also make it useful for those (such as analysts and teachers) trying to understand or communicate the multi-dimensional aspects of environmental assessment and compliance.

While teaching my Hazardous Waste Remediation class this semester, I tried to excite my engineering students to learn about various federal laws and regulations pertaining to environmental protection. Although these laws and regulations were available in the Federal Register, because of the way they are written, the students did not show much excitement. Recently, I came across this book by Jain et al. and showed the students how concisely the laws and regulations are presented in this book. The first response from the students was "why did not you mention about this book earlier"? Truly, it is a comprehensive book on environmental assessment. It provides a step-by-step approach so that a novice can understand easily. Two other aspects of the book worth mentioning are a) the international perspectives on environmental assessment and b) energy and environmental implications. I strongly feel it is an excellent volume that can be used as a text or reference book.
