Environmental Science provides an engaging and interdisciplinary introduction to the Earth’s physical and biological systems. Although Environmental Science is written ostensibly for a US curriculum: AP Environmental Science, it provides an excellent supplement to the VCE Environmental Science course. It features an engaging and interdisciplinary introduction to the Earth’s physical and biological systems. Visually rich coverage of core principles forms the foundation for examining the influence of humans on the Earth's resources and ecology through historical and current case studies. This revision introduces new content and aligns the workbook to its supporting digital resources. Content developments include updates on the Gulf of Mexico oil spill and the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, and in-depth coverage of energy extraction issues, pollution, and the wider environmental implications of urban development.
