Significance of Advanced Monitoring and Application of Environmental Numerical Simulation

Part of the cSUR-UT Series: Library for Sustainable Urban Regeneration book series (LSUR, volume 3)

In the fields of civil engineering, architecture, and environmental engineering, environmental monitoring and model simulation are essential component in setting up the strategy of environmental research from the aspect of urban sustainability. Advanced knowledge of monitoring and numerical simulation is required for graduate students to conduct their research dealing with the identification of environmental problems and investigations toward their solution. When dealing with increasing environmental concerns associated with water, air and soil pollution, as well as climate change induced by human activities, the accurate assessment of the state of the environment is a prerequisite for undertaking any course of action towards improvement.
