Editors: Christopher A. Hudspeth and Timothy E. Reeve
Book Description:
This book addresses current issues in agriculture as well as the effects of wind and water. There is public concern worldwide about the impact of agriculture runoff on the environment and the migration of agrochemicals from their target to nearby terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. Coastal management aims to prevent erosion and flooding. Without conservation work, subsiding coastal area are prone to progressive submersion by the sea. This book presents new methodologies and research trends to manage the concerns related to these three environmental concerns.
