Introduction

Quantitative assessments of environmental risks are at present being conducted at a variety of international and local levels. However, the use of natural mechanisms in managing risk processes is not widely understood and therefore is not being applied to the degree possible. In addition, there exists among many stakeholders a high level of uncertainty about risk estimates. It is now known that the sustainability ofmodern technogeosystems, within the confines of existing economic systems, can be determined by natural biogeochemical cycles, transformed to different degrees by anthropogenic activity. An understanding of fundamental principles in the management of pollutant fluxes in the biogeochemical food web will allows us to use current concepts in quantitative risk assessment and to apply technological solutions for managing these risks within the given economic structure.

This article summarizes the important current research being done in this field and provides a basis for various problem solutions to both practitioners and students of environmental risk management.
