About the book
Spatial Variability in Environmental Science includes chapters that assess the spatial patterns of conditions and anthropogenic problems of our natural environments. This book is intended to encompass any aspect of the science of the environment, particularly those perspectives from the life sciences, the earth sciences, and the social sciences that regard the prospects and problems stemming from the use of and protection of our natural environments and the processes that provide the bases for life. Chapters regarding the identification, analysis, and assessment of natural and human-nature environmental processes will be included, particularly (but not limited to) those that regard plants and animals, ecology, water, air, soils, and environmental change. Furthermore, applications of geospatial analysis, geographical tools, and new methods and techniques are particularly important aspects of studies of spatial variability analyses. Evaluations of the geographical dimensions of the biogeochemical aspects of and human activities in our environment will provide readers with new perspectives on the range and tendencies existing in the world that surrounds us.
