The Theory and The Practice of Environmental Impact and Assessment

S.A. Abbasi (Author) N. Ramesh (Author)
Synopsis Several good texts are now available on the techniques and tools of environments impact assessment, including Prof Abbasi’s bestseller Environmental Impact Assessment: Available Techniques, Emerging Trends brought out by this publishing house in 2000. but no other book except this one presents extensive case studies which tell the reader how to actually conduct an EIA, how to report it, and how to get the most compelling results at the least cost. A Chapter on application of GIS (geographical information system) in EIA bestows further topicality and richness on the book. The by now celebrated style of Prof Abbasi-with which complex science is explained with clarity, simplicity, sincerity, and intimacy-makes this book immensely readable as well as rewarding. We hope that like the author’s other works this book, too, will climb the bestseller list and stay there.
