The Association for Environmental Health and Sciences (AEHS) was created to facilitate communication and foster cooperation among professionals concerned with the challenge of soil protection and cleanup. Experience over the past decades has revealed the need for a consistent and reliable network for the exchange of information derived from multiple sources and disciplines among people who, because of different disciplinary affiliations and interests, may not have easy access to significant portions of the information map. AEHS provides the network.
AEHS members represent the many disciplines involved in making decisions and solving problems affecting soils, including chemistry, geology, hydrogeology, law, engineering, modeling, toxicology, regulatory science, public health, and public policy.
AEHS recognizes that widely acceptable solutions to the problem of contaminated soil can be found only through the integration of scientific and technological discovery, social and political judgment, and hands-on practice. AEHS activities-including national and international workshops, seminars, and conferences, and the development and distribution of published materials-encourage dialogue among disciplines, industries, sectors of society and the economy, and countries.
Benefits of Membership
AEHS welcomes all who are interested in soil contamination, especially analysis, assessment, remediation, and regulation. The Association's members represent the scientific, regulatory, industrial, and public sectors. The primary benefit of AEHS membership is the linkage it provides among professionals involved in the various aspects of soil protection and cleanup. This linkage is effected through many vehicles and communication channels, including:
- annual conferences on contaminated soils (discounted registration for members);
- seminars, workshops, and other training opportunities;
- Choice of one of the following environmental journals (International Journal of Phytoremediation, Human and Ecological Risk Assessment, or the Soil & Sediment Contamination: an International Journal) and the option to subscribe to either or both of the other journal(s) at the reduced rate of $65 each.
- NEW BENEFIT! AEHS members will now receive BOTH the hard copy AND electronic access to the journal(s) you choose. Electronic access will grant access to the current issue, AS WELL AS ALL BACK ISSUES of the journal(s) selected.
