The book has two aims: to introduce basic concepts of environmental modelling and to facilitate the application of the concepts using modern numerical tools such as MATLAB. It is targeted at all natural scientists dealing with the environment: process and chemical engineers, physicists, chemists, biologists, biochemists, hydrogeologists, geochemists and ecologists. MATLAB was chosen as the major computer tool for modeling, firstly because it is unique in it's capabilities, and secondly because it is available in most academic institutions, in all universities and in the research departments of many companies. In the 2nd edition many chapters will include updated and extended material. In addition the MATLAB command index will be updated and a new chapter on numerical methods will be added.

For the second edition of 'Environmental Modeling' the first edition was completely revised. Text and figures were adapted to the recent MATLAB® version. Several chapters were extended. Correspondingly the index of MATLAB commands was extended considerably, which makes the book even more suitable to be used as a reference work by novices. Finally an introduction into numerical methods was added as a new chapter. &

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:"The aim of the book is to introduce basic concepts of environmental modeling and to enable the reader to simulate environmental systems on a computer. . The book is an excellent introduction and text book for environmental transport modeling. . can be recommended for graduate students of environmental sciences and engineering with a basic knowledge in linear algebra and physics. . a valuable monograph for experts working in environmental agencies or consulting bureaus who are interested in familiarizing themselves with modern environmental software applications."
