Microplastics (MPs) have been identified as an emerging soil pollutant and a global environmental concern. Scientists have recently paid attention to the contamination of soil by MPs as their detrimental impacts on soil systems are largely unknown. MPs are considered to be vectors for other soil contaminants, such as potentially toxic elements...

Natural processes and anthropogenic activities are the major factors that can deteriorate groundwater quality. This study provides an insight into groundwater quality and its drinking suitability in part of Rajasthan. The physicochemical analysis of parameters (pH, EC,TDS, Ca2+, Mg2+, Na+, K+, F−, HCO3−, Cl−, NO3−, and SO42−) was conducted in the...

Because of its threat to the quality of freshwater resources and human health, arsenic
(As) pollution is important to scientific communities and policymakers around the world. The
Mekong Delta, Vietnam, is one hotspot of As pollution. Its risk assessment of different environmental
components has been well documented; however, very few studies...

River sediment can be used to measure the pollution level in natural water, as it serves as
one of the vital environmental indicators. This study aims to assess heavy metal pollution namely
Copper (Cu), Iron (Fe), Manganese (Mn), Zinc (Zn), Nickel (Ni), Lead (Pb), and Cadmium (Cd) in
Surma River. Further, it compares potential ecological risk...

While the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) are broadly framed with 17 goals, the goals and their targets inherently
connect with each other forming a complex system. Actions supporting one goal may influence progress in other goals,
either positively (synergies) or negatively (trade-offs). Effective managing the synergies and trade-offs is a...

In China's Carbon-Energy Policy and Asia's Energy Transition: Carbon Leakage, Relocation and Halos

India has an ambitious renewable energy target for the decades ahead. However, the targets are faced with two critical impediments: (1) the lack of an internationally competitive renewable equipment manufacturing industry domestically and (2) the overdependency on external supply sources for equipment and machinery. The chapter finds that, despite...

The extensive work on the increasing burden of aerosols and resultant climate implications
shows a matter of great concern. In this study, we investigate the aerosol optical depth (AOD)
variations in the Indian Himalayan Region (IHR) between its plains and alpine regions and the
corresponding consequences on the energy balance on the Himalayan...

This study aims to assess the impacts of land use and land cover (LULC) changes on
the water quality of the Surma river in Bangladesh. For this, seasonal water quality changes were
assessed in comparison to the LULC changes recorded from 2010 to 2019. Obtained results from this
study indicated that pH, electrical conductivity (EC), and total...

Forests are an important natural resource and are instrumental in sustaining environmental
sustainability. Burning biomass in forests results in greenhouse gas emissions, many of which are longlived.
Precise and consistent broad-scale monitoring of fire intensity is a valuable tool for analyzing
climate and ecological changes related to fire...
