Series: Energy and the Environment

Series Editor: James G. Speight

Scope: Our quest for energy and its impact on the environment is one of the most pressing issues of our time. Climate change, a deteriorating environment, and high fuel costs are only a few of the problems surrounding energy, our need for it, and the consequences of energy consumption. This series attempts to examine, explain, and solve many of these problems, from an engineering point of view. Taking into consideration both fossil fuels and renewable energy, the scope of this series covers oil and gas, coal, wind, solar, biofuels, geothermal, and other sources of energy and how they can be managed without a heavy impact on our fragile environment.

The Energy and the Environment series reaches a wide audience including engineers, scientists, researchers, industrial experts and students working in the fields of oil and gas, coal, wind energy, solar energy, biofuels, and geothermal energy.
