Marine Pollution: Sources, Fate and Effects of Pollutants in Coastal Ecosystems bring together the theoretical background on common and emerging marine pollutants and their effects on organisms (ecotoxicology). Written by a renowned expert in the field who is a researcher, teacher and advisor of national and international institutions on issues such as oil spills, water quality assessment and. A global pandemic that is claiming people’s lives certainly shouldn’t be seen as a way of bringing about environmental change either. For one thing, it’s far from certain how lasting this.

Environmental pollution is reaching worrying proportions worldwide. Urbanization and industrialization along with economic development have led to increase in energy consumption and waste discharges. The global environmental pollution, including greenhouse gas emissions and acid deposition, as well as water pollution and waste management is Cited by: 6. Environmental Pollution welcomes high quality submissions on all aspects of environmental pollution and the mitigation measures related to ecosystem & human health. Hide full Aims & Scope. Most Downloaded. Recent Articles. Open Access Articles. A small-scale, portable method for extracting microplastics from marine sediments - Open access.

He was the author or editor of several books including Global Effects of Environmental Pollution (), The Ocean in Human Affairs (), Global Climate Change (), The Greenhouse Debate Continued (), and Hot Talk, Cold Science ().Alma mater: Ohio State University, Princeton University.   The environment is a delicate thing, and environmental problems, such as global warming and water pollution, are causing negative impacts around the world. Many of the environmental problems being experienced are a result of human contributions, such as excessive waste, industry pollution and overpopulation. Meanwhile, the Earth's resources.

Mood. Environmental pollution is one of the most serious global challenges. Wild-type organisms have a slower degradation rate of hazardous materials.

Wild-type organisms have a slower degradation rate of hazardous materials. Effects of Environmental Pollution on Humans. The effects of air pollution on humans are quite severe. It is considered the main cause of ever rising cases of respiratory system problems and diseases, like asthma and cancer.

As for the effects of water pollution, these include a large number of water-borne diseases, ranging from diarrhea and vomiting to gastroenteritis and typhoid. Environmental Pollution: Its Effects on Life and Its Remedies. still time left in the hands of global institutions, governments and local bodies to use the advance resources to balance the.

Another view is that worldwide proliferation of industry and technology is the chief culprit, posing the threat of global warming and requiring curtailment if pollution is to be conquered. The early s brought discussion of more effective means to calculate the true costs of pollution in terms of its effects on health, productivity, and quality of life.

The handbook Global Environmental Change is intended to serve as a reliable and comprehensive resource to attend the needs of researchers, teachers, students, and professionals working in science and policy aspects relevant to environment and sustainability.
