Aims and Scope

Understanding and assessing the myriad environmental problems that face society today and devising rational strategies and methods for their control are two of the major international challenges of our times. There is a global demand for pollution abatement, but adequate and appropriate measures for pollution control, pollution prevention, and remediation of past environmental degredation will require sound technical knowledge of the factors and processes involved. Environmental science is the complex and dynamic interaction of diverse scientific disciplines, including earth and agricultural sciences, chemistry, biology, medicine, and engineering, and the development of new disciplines like environmental toxicology and risk assessment. This journal seeks to serve as an international forum for the critical review of current knowledge on the broad range of topics in environmental science. It addresses current problems of the day and the scientific basis for new pollution control technologies. Critical Reviews in Environmental Science and Technology was previously published by CRC press as Critical Reviews in Environmental Control. While the name has been changed to reflect the broader scope of the journal, the purpose of Critical Reviews remains the same: comprehensive and timely reviews by the leading authorities in each subject area.
