PREFACE
Environment and development are the two sides of a coin. Developmental activities e.g., industrial, agricultural, transportation, constructional work, etc., cause degradation and drastic changes in every component of environment namely, hydrosphere water , lithosphere soil and atmosphere air through pollution. In order to recognise and predict hazardous effects of pollutants, the scientific monitoring of these environmental components is essential. For this purpose, the quantitative characterization of water, soil and air is the prerequisite. It gives us an idea about the seriousness of pollution problem in these three environmental components. This would also help in focussing on the extent to which pollution control is required and generate real concern among policy planners. Books are available on different aspects of pollution and environmental engineering, but literature regarding methods of quantification of pollutants and characterization of water, soil and air is meager. This text is a compilation of some tested and widely used analytical methods of characterizing water, soil and air from environmental pollution point of view. The text is divided into sixteen chapters and two appendices dealing with procedures quantifying various physical, chemical and biological aspects. The introductory part of water, soil and air as a component of environment is also included in a simple and explanatory manner to give better insight of the subject. Hopefully, the technical information contained herein will prove useful to students, teachers, scientists and analysts studying working in the field of biological and applied sciences, more specifically, in the fields of Environmental Science, Ecology, Plant Science, Forestry, Soil Science, Agronomy, Horticulture, Geology and Hydrology. Efforts are made to make this The author acknowledges the every source of
information from where he has drawn technical matter. The author is also thankful to M s Agrobios India , Jodhpur for their cooperation. P. K. GUPTA
