Environmental language has become highly technical and specialized – like a foreign language that's difficult to master and interweave into legal discussions. Environmental Science Deskbook solves this problem with plain-English explanations of scientific terms, acronyms, concepts, methods, and applications. The text enables you to be conversant with such acronyms as PAHs, PQLs, VOCs, BOD, and DNAPLS, and have a better understanding of environmental science concepts from fields such as statistics, physics, chemistry, and toxicology. This title helps you:

  • Identify which environmental science concepts are essential to your briefs, pleadings, and advocacy strategies
  • Speak knowledgeably with technical experts on topics such as well construction and quantification limits
  • Keep current with new and evolving techniques, including enhanced remediation methods and Monte Carlo simulation

This resource also provides explanatory environmental legal practice examples so you can see the practical applications.

Can you talk TSCA?: The 2017 update includes an extensive new discussion of regulatory conventions for naming chemicals, just in time for implementation of the sweeping amendments made last year by the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act. The update – authored by Jeffrey Hafer of Critical Path Services – explains how the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) nomenclature practices differ from academic practice, and compares the TSCA practices to those followed under the European Union's REACH and other international programs.
