This handbook, Basic Environmental Concepts, is the first in a series on the nature and effects of the environmental phenomena.

The categorization of materiel as it exists and relates to environmental effects also is discussed. Part One introduces in a general and qualitative manner those factors that are to be treated quantitatively in the succeeding volumes.
