    Environmental Science: Physical Principles and Applications examines the fundamental problems that arise from the interaction between humans and their natural environment. Taken from a physicists perspective, this comprehensive introduction considers how the negative impact of our modern existence upon our environment can be avoided, or at the very least reduced.
    Providing extensive coverage of the field, this book brings together the latest developments, theories, research and concerns from both a scientific and social perspective. Beginning with an introduction on approaching environmental problems, the text then moves on to look at climatic change, conventional energy, the transport of pollutants, experimental methods and ends with a discussion on science and society.
    Mathematics is only introduced where necessary, and is carefully explained with derivations generally avoided. The science is made more accessible through the introduction of many illustrative examples in the theoretical parts of the text combined with the inclusion of numerous mini-case studies.
    Environmental Science: Physical Principles and Applications features:
    Extensive coverage of the latest concerns, issues and developments within the field from both a scientific and social perspective.
    Numerous relevant examples and mini-case studies (appetisers) combined with exercises in each chapter and references for further reading.
    A supplementary website where students can access experiments and simple models relevant to the book
    This introductory textbook will be invaluable to all students taking a first course in environmental science, environmental physics, environmental analysis or environmental monitoring.

    An essential introductory text linking traditional biostatistics with bayesian methods
    In recent years, Bayesian methods have seen an explosion of interest, with applications in fields including biochemistry, ecology, medicine, oncology, pharmacology, and public health. As an interpretive system integrating data with observation, the Bayesian approach provides a nuanced yet mathematically rigorous means of conceptualizing biomedical statistics--from diagnostic tests to DNA evidence.
    Biostatistics: A Bayesian Introduction offers a pioneering approach by presenting the foundations of biostatistics through the Bayesian lens. Using easily understood, classic Dutch Book thought experiments to derive subjective probability from a simple principle of rationality, the book connects statistical science with scientific reasoning. The author shows how to compute, interpret, and report Bayesian statistical analyses in practice, and illustrates how to reinterpret traditional statistical reporting--such as confidence intervals, margins of error, and one-sided p-values--in Bayesian terms. Topics covered include:
    * Probability and subjective probability
    * Distributions and descriptive statistics
    * Continuous probability distributions
    * Comparing rates and means
    * Linear models and statistical adjustment
    * Logistic regression and adjusted odds ratios
    * Survival analysis
    * Hierarchical models and meta-analysis
    * Decision theory and sample size determination
    The book includes extensive problem sets and references in each chapter, as well as complete instructions on computer analysis with the versatile SAS and WinBUGS software packages as well as the Excel spreadsheet program. For professionals and students, Biostatistics: A Bayesian Introduction offers an unique, real-world entry point into a remarkable alternative method of interpreting statistical data.
