Abstract : Guidance is provided for the selection and use of environmental analysis techniques for environmental quality planning and evaluation. Uses of generic types of environmental analysis methods (such as environmental impact matrices for environmental planning) are explained. Technique profiles are given to support planning steps, and four Performance Matrices are given to assist the user. One section contains measurement and evaluation techniques for use in Environmental Quality Evaluation Procedures with (a) technique profiles that describe methods, techniques, and procedures for characterizing ecological, cultural, and aesthetics and (b) Profile Characteristics Matrices. An extensive bibliography contains the references, reports, and citations also considered in preparing the handbook. (Author)
