This series examines the science concepts behind the various renewable energy resources of the titles, along with how they might be able to replace fossil fuels, their current uses, and future developments and applications. Each volume contains an introduction to the resource, an overview of the history of the resource, chapters discussing how it works, if it can replace fossil fuels, current applications and issues surrounding its use, and the future prospects for use of the resource. “Words in Context” boxes help define terms in the text while highlighted text boxes provide examples or additional information about the topic. Illustrated with color photographs, drawings, and diagrams, each volume is eye-catching and visually appealing. Timely and informative, these accessible and readable volumes would be useful in social studies and environmental science classes as well as for research and for those with a personal interest in the topics.
