The book carefully develops the mathematical principles upon which such systems are based, using examples from a wide variety of current communications systems wherever possible. These range from commercial broadcasting and telephone systems to satellite telemetry and radar.

Commercial chemicals contribute to our social welfare, yet can poseserious problems for the environment. How do we recognise theseproblems? How do we manage them? How do we objectively balanceenvironmental risks with social benefits? This book describes theprinciples and practices of ecological risk assessment andcost-benefit analysis, asking key but challenging questions such as?what are we trying to protect?? and ?how do we undertake acost-benefit analysis??. It also shows how these principles arewritten into legislation. The emphasis is on the EU Directives andRegulations, with a chapter on the instruments and institutionsinvolved; but this is balanced by a review of US and Internationalpolicies and legislation. In conclusion, the discussion returns tothe question of attempting to balance risks with benefits,particularly in the context of the development of sustainable andglobally practicable chemical control policies. The text issupplemented by a glossary that defines the inevitably large numberof abbreviations and acronyms used by environmental policy-makersand regulators. The book is intended for all those who have aninterest in industrial chemicals, but who need an overview ofpollution and pollution control issues. It will provide anexcellent reference tool for undergraduates in EnvironmentalScience, and Policy-Makers and Environmental Consultants in theareas of ecology, ecotoxicology and risk assessment.
