Abstract

Any understanding of how fluid dynamics impacts environmental law necessarily must start with a basic understanding of environmental law. This chapter will provide a general overview of some of the important environmental laws in the United States and throughout the world. In the United States, these laws predominantly come in the form of statutes (laws enacted by Congress and the states) and regulations (rules created by regulatory agencies).
