||MANAGEMENT OF WATER, ENERGY AND BIO-RESOURCES IN THE ERA OF CLIMATE CHANGE: Emerging Issues and Challenges
Author: N. Janardhana Raju, Wolfgang Gossel, ALRamanathan and M. Sudhakar
Description: The proposed book will address multidisciplinary aspects of science and technologies. It covers around 10 to 15 topics of current environmentally significant parameters like water, air, biological aspects and climate change impacts on them. The chapters in this book include a wide variety of topics on Water resources assessment and management, Water pollution and Water quality control, Energy Resources assessment and management, Biodiversity and Ecosystem assessment, Environmental planning and management and hazards. Apart from these, it also addresses issues like contamination and their controlling factors besides other aspects like surface water analysis, modeling, hydroinformatics , hydrogeology and water resources, urban hydrology and Flood risk management etc. The book is expected to be useful to environmental, water resources and energy managers, scientists, researchers and related workers interested in climate change impact on our environment and natural resource management.
