Author: Dr. N. Janardhana Raju, Dr. Wolfgang Gossel, Dr. S. Sreekesh, Dr. M. Sudhakar
Description: Our environment is undergoing drastic changes owing to multitude of human interventions. Such interventions create varying magnitude of pollution and environmental issues. Understanding the dynamics of environmental changes is critical to halting and reversing such environmental and human vulnerability. The book is a peer reviewed edited volume that explores some of these issues. The contributors of this book share their experience on environmental problems especially those related to environmental pollution and remediation in different ecosystems. Bio-remediation for resource enrichment, strategies for mitigating environmental pollution issues and challenges in sustainable management of water resources are the main focus themes in this book. In the bio-remediation section different methods of physico-chemical and biological removal of the pollutants and recovery of the resources has been discussed. In the Environmental pollution section the book discusses the different pathways of pollutant movement and environmental hazards including the loss of biodiversity. These studies suggested strategies to overcome these environmental issues. The section on Management of water resources explores different hydrological conditions emanating from misuse and mismanagement of surface and underground water resources. This section also showcases various technologies including modelling, geospatial and other tools to assess such conditions. The book presents numerous field based research studies in different geo-environmental settings. The emphasis is on highlighting the methodological approaches to tackle different environmental problems. The book would interest researchers, academicians, environmental, and planners in particular those who are interested in finding sustainable solutions to the challenging environmental issues and problems.
