Engineering and Environmental Challenges: Technical Symposium on Earth Systems Engineering

Added02/11/2016

Updated06/14/2016

Authoring Institution The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine

Dealing with the challenges presented by climate change or rapid urban development require cooperation and expertise from engineering, social and natural sciences. Earth systems engineering is an emerging area of multidisciplinary study that takes a holistic view of natural and human system interactions to better understand complex systems. It seeks to develop methods and tools that enable technically sound and ethically wise decisions. Engineering and Environmental Challenges presents the proceedings of a National Academy of Engineering public symposium on Earth systems engineering.
