Environmental sciences; problems and prospects

Environmental sciences; problems and prospects

Transactions - American Geophysical Union 46(2): 373-376

The environmental sciences, those which specially concern man's surroundings, pose social, economic, legal, and esthetic problems whose solution is as essential to the health of our society as understanding their scientific aspects. Unbalanced pressures are now being exerted from without and from within for the expanded development of these sciences. The unbalance is amplified by lack of a buffer composed of engineers and scientists primarily concerned with applying new knowledge in environmental sciences to society's problems. The idea of a National Institute of Environmental Sciences, with responsibilities broader than those of any single existing agency, deserves serious study.
