      Abstract: IntroductionWhen the neo-Malthusians were busy in predicting the impending food crisis across the world due to burgeoning levels of population, little did they conceive of a situation where the food production would outstrip the rate of population growth. This has been made possible in large measure due to the increased production of the variegated nitrogenous inputs that have served to amplify the levels of food production1. A direct consequence of this has been the intensification in nit...

    • Authors: Shubhajit Saha; Dip Mukherjee, Kishore Dhara, Nimai Saha
      Abstract: IntroductionPesticides are being used indiscriminately to maintain a sustainable yield of various crops necessary to support the ever increasing animal population. They constitute a prime component of agricultural runoff which gets intermingled to the adjacent water bodies affecting the life of different non-target organisms (Raina et al., 2009).The contamination of aquatic ecosystem by pesticides is a global problem (Hill, 1985; Sibley and Kaushik, 1991).

  • Groundwater Chemistry at Deep Aquifer in Koyra: Khulna, Bangladesh

    • Authors: Tusar Das; Molla Shaibur, Mohammad Rahman
      Abstract: IntroductionWater is the foundation of life on globe. The water quality is the key to all of the roles that water plays in human body or their natural surroundings. Water is vital for human life, ecological functioning, socio-economic evolution, food supply and also poverty lessening.1 The superiority of accessible water varies spatially. The varying geological and climatic factors determine the provincial differences in water individuality.2 Depending on weather, the quality of accessible...

  • Seasonal Variations of Small Wading Birds in the Pichavaram Mangrove
           Forest, India

    • Authors: Rajendran Jagadheesan; Jeganathan Pandiyan
      Abstract: IntroductionShorebirds are well known for their long distance migration 1 and they are travelling thousands of kilometer annually from breeding grounds to wintering grounds vice versa 2,3. Shorebirds use different aquatic habitats and they are intensely dependent on various stop over sites for rest and refuel during their migration 4. Several wetlands which are situated along the coastal regions are showing critical foraging sites for various species of shorebirds during their migratory pe...

  • An Investigation into the Pinnacle of Environment and Measures to Protect
           

    • Authors: Dr. Hanumant Chouhan
      Abstract: IntroductionIndividuals are specifically bound to the ecosystem. However, there seems to be no discrimination that the world is influenced by human behavior. Indeed, climate warming has a substantial impact on biodiversity. There has also been a persistent increase in global warming over the past 140 years, and now has a direct influence on a vast range of factors connected with the atmosphere. As a result of the start of industrialization, CO2 and methane are being injected into the atmos...

           Systems and Contamination Studies

    • Authors: Dr. Krishan
      Abstract: Groundwater over exploitation and depletion in groundwater table in many parts of the World posing a serious problem and there is a pressing need to find out the responsible factors1-3. In addition to the fall in water table, quality of usable groundwater is also deteriorating due to the natural or anthropogenic contaminations4-6. Some of the factors for depleting groundwater levels and groundwater quality degradation are ever increasing populations; industrial discharges; surface pavements, d...

  • Existence of Microplastic as Pollutant in Harike Wetland: An Analysis of
           Plastic Composition and First Report on Ramsar Wetland of India

    • Authors: Shaista Manzoor; Harpreet Kaur, Rahul Singh
      Abstract: IntroductionWetlands are having many global processes such as carbon cycle, fisheries production, shelter for local and migratory birds and biogeochemical cycles. They are not only ecologically important but also contribute in economy of that area. Wetland export 20% of total world’s organic carbon in nature. It also contributes to biomass production where in animals although small but form an important fraction of this biomass. Wetlands particularly riverine wetlands provide imp...

           Processes for Wastewater

    • Authors: Bina Patel; Pradipkumar Gundaliya, Drashti Amin
      Abstract: IntroductionEnvironmental pollution is a present global issue waiting to be addressed. It is a subject that troubles us physically, economically and disrupts the day to day functioning of our lives1,2. Wastewateris usually classified as municipal wastewater (domestic wastewater or sewage) and industrial wastewater, which is inevitable in a country like India3,4. Efficient treatment of the wastewater is a big challenge to the corresponding authorities. India faces severe problems of collect...

  • Determination of Arsenic Uptake Potential in An Edible Plant Species
           (Trigonellna foenum- granecum) and Assessment of Human Health Risk

    • Authors: Gnaana Kaalieswari K; Dr. Chakraborty, Krishnendu Mukhopadhyay
      Abstract: IntroductionNatural and anthropogenic sources are the two major areas from where arsenic (As) may contaminate the normal environment1. Contamination of arsenic can be toxic and fatal if it will enter the food web via water and soil routes. Previous researchers also observed the contamination of groundwater and foods via arsenic in different parts of the world2,3. Contamination of soil by arsenic may result from agricultural activities, various anthropogenic activities, etc. According to Hu...

  • Geospatial Groundwater Quality Assessment and Identification of Polluted
           Risky Regions in Jamui District of Bihar with Special Reference to Uranium
           and Fluoride Concentration

    • Authors: Subhash Singh; Palash Dutta
      Abstract: Groundwater is the water present beneath Earth’s surface in pore spaces of the sediments and in the fracture of rock formation. Precipitation infiltrates below the ground surface into the aquifers causing groundwater. Water percolates downward after having saturated soil zone. Rain can cause the water table to rise whereas continuous extraction of ground water can cause the level to fall. Since groundwater is part of the hydrologic cycle, contaminants in other parts of the cycle, such ...

    • Authors: Parthsarthi Pandya; Rohit Kumarkhaniya, Ravina Parmar, Piyush Ajani
      Abstract: Introduction Inappropriate agroecosystem management and frequent droughts have made the drylands increasingly susceptible and prone to rapid degradation.1 Drought is an extreme hydrological event relates to not only rainfall amount but also its intensity, duration, frequency as well as distribution. The parameters like temperature, evaporation, wind speed, relative humidity, etc. also play important role in drought occurrence. Drought can be categorized based on its impact in four basic ap...
