The rapid growth in microplastic pollution research is influencing funding priorities, environmental policy, and public perceptions of risks to water quality and environmental and human health. Ensuring that environmental microplastics research data are findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable (FAIR) is essential to inform policy and...

In this paper, the quality of a source of drinking water is assessed by measuring eight water quality (WQ) parameters using 710 samples collected from a water-stressed region of India, Jodhpur Rajasthan. The entire sample was divided into ten groups representing different geographic locations. Using American Public Health Association (APHA)...

In September 2014, Kashmir witnessed a catastrophic flood resulting in a significant loss
of lives and property. Such massive losses could have been avoided if any structural support such
as dams were constructed in the Jhelum basin, which has a history of devastating floods. The GIS based
multicriteria analysis (MCA) model provided three...

Protected places such as nature reserves (NRs) are used to maintain ecological balance,
biodiversity, and support surrounding ecosystems. However, the development and operation of
infrastructure such as dikes and sluice gates in NRs, as seen in the Vietnamese Mekong Delta
(VMD), often adversely affects the hydrological regime and water quality...

Population increase has placed ever-increasing demands on the available groundwater
(GW) resources, particularly for intensive agricultural activities. In India, groundwater is the backbone
of agriculture and drinking purposes. In the present study, an assessment of groundwater
reserves was carried out in the Udaipur district, Aravalli range...

In Riverine Systems: Understanding the Hydrological, Hydrosocial and Hydro-heritage Dynamics

Changes in demography, land-use land cover and local climate have had a cumulative effect on local water bodies, resulting in unfavorable hydrological, ecological and environmental changes in major river systems. Communities on isolated riverine islands are particularly badly affected due to their poor adaptive capacities, a situation that is well...

This study utilized MIKE 11 to quantify the spatio-temporal dynamics of water quality parameters (Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD5), Dissolved Oxygen (DO) and temperature) in the Long Xuyen Quadrangle area of the Vietnamese Mekong Delta. Calibrated for the year of 2019 and validated for the year of 2020, the developed model showed a significant...
