AMCP 706-119, AMC PAMPHLET: ENGINEERING DESIGN HANDBOOK - ENVIRONMENTAL SERIES (PART FIVE) GLOSSARY OF ENVIRONMENTAL TERMS (JUL-1975)., The 1975 handbook is the fifth in a series on the nature and effects of the environmental phenomena. This handbook is a glossary supplied for use with the Environmental Series of Engineering Design Handbooks. Its purpose is to provide scientists, engineers, military and civilian personnel with definitions of the words and terms used in these handbooks, as well as some other closely related words or terms that may be unfamiliar to the average reader. Environmental terms comprise a majority of the contents of this glossary but, since the handbooks also include the effects of environment on materiel and operations, a variety of terms from the related scientific and engineering disciplines are defined. In addition, selected terms unique to military operations are included. Specifically excluded are definitions of both technical and nontechnical terms that are part of the common lexicon and for which the common definition applies as used in the handbooks. In many cases, only the appropriate uncommon definition of a term is provided. Cross-referencing is employed for definitions common to several terms or that are closely interrelated. Abbreviations and acronyms that are employed in the Environmental Series and that may be unfamiliar to some readers are included.
