    What type of 'impact' is this industrial activity having: there's a difference between spreading pollution for miles, and a great big boost to the economy!

    Exclamation Re: Impact

    I was referring to the environmental impact analysis of steel plant activities. How such activities may give rise to positive and/or negative impact on the surrounding environment. BTW, thanks for the reply.

    Re: Impact

    Magnitude, which also means scale/size, sounds more scientific and appropriate for an EIA report.
