One of the most urgent challenges facing the world today is to ensure an adequate supply and quality of water in light of both burgeoning human needs and increasing climate variability and change. Despite the importance of water to life on Earth, there are major gaps in our basic understanding of water availability, quality and dynamics, and the impact of both human activity and a changing and variable climate on the water system.

This year the World Water Week (#WWWeek) conference in Stockholm, Sweden, (August 31- September 5) focuses on the theme of ‘Energy and Water: the vital link for a sustainable future’. Elsevier strongly supports World Water Week and is sponsoring the event. Visit booth #B05:50 to learn more, chat with our editors and browse Elsevier’s high-quality books and journals!

In honor of World Water Week, Elsevier is giving up to 30% OFF all Water-Related Books, use code WATER14 at checkout.

Earth & Environmental Science

The fields of Earth science, planetary sciences, and environmental science encompass disciplines critical to the future of our world and its inhabitants. Our well-being depends on a thorough understanding of air and water resources, soil chemistry, atmospheric dynamics, geology, and geochemistry, along with a myriad of other aspects of the environment we live in. Elsevier supports the efforts of researchers and scholars in these areas with content that meets their cross-disciplinary needs: journals, books, eBooks, and online tools that span computer science, chemistry, energy, engineering, biology, agronomy, ecology, environmental impact and many other topics fundamental to the study of our world.
