The text then covers specific agents of environmental diseases (e.g., microbial agents, toxic metals, pesticides, and ionizing and nonionizing radiation). Finally, applications and domains of environmental health are addressed (water and air quality, food safety, waste disposal, occupational health, and injuries).

Define the major types, sources, and environmental distribution of environmental agents Describe how these agents interact with biological systems, and describe the mechanisms by which they exert adverse effects Predict the nature of the agent’s adverse effects from its physical, chemical, or infectious properties, and how that mayFile Size: KB.

To understand global environmental change, it is necessary to focus on the interactions of environmental systems, including the atmosphere, the biosphere, the geosphere, and the hydrosphere, and human systems, including economic, political, cultural, and sociotechnical systems.

The journal interprets global environmental change to mean the outcome of processes that are manifest in.

The goal of Regional Environmental Change is to publish scientific research and opinion papers that improve our understanding of the extent of these changes, their causes, their impacts on people, and the options for society to respond. "Regional" refers to the full range of scales between local and global, including regions defined by natural.
