ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT: PRINCIPLES AND APPLICATIONS
This volume contains information and suggestions that will be useful to those who undertake the design, conduct, and/or management of comprehensive environmental impact assessments mandated by the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA). The book is composed of six sections. Part I presents a broad overview of environmental impact assessment and discusses some of the general technical, social, bureaucratic, legal, and managerial aspects of impact assessment under NEPA. Parts II and III present information and guidelines for the assessment of impacts on the physical and social environments. In each of these sections, emphasis is given to the general approach to assessment, to the parameters and processes involved, predictive schemes, sources of data and information, and criteria of adequacy of assessment. Part IV presents information and guidelines for considering interactions among physical and social environmental impacts and for ensuring that a consideration of these interactions becomes an integral part of the overall assessment process. Part V reviews the overall assessment process and identifies current trends and future needs and possibilities. Part VI contains appendices that will help the reader better utilize textual materials.
