Designed for courses which deal with geology and environmental policy, and environmental decisions, usually called environmental geology, but taught at a more sophisticated level than the usual freshman (nonscience level) course in environmental geology. The text's purpose is to emphasize the importance of seeing environmental geology as a scientific field demanding steadily increasing attention to interaction with other disciplines, and understanding how environmental geology is shaped by the needs imposed by environmental policy and how it can help to shape environmental decisions.
