About this eBook

Preface
There was a time Environmental Science was taught only to students of life sciences or natural sciences. With the evolution of man, his relationship with nature drastically changed. There was a long resilience period when ecological processes could recover from threats of human development. However, environmental problems arose with the multi-dimensional development of our society. Recent phenomenon of climate change surpassed all other threats imposed on human life and its sustainability. Therefore, today it has become the need of every citizen to know about the fundamentals of environmental science and its management. Current scope of environmental science includes a wide range of subjects, viz., environmental sociology, environmental politics, environmental economics as well as environmental engineering. It is important for a student of engineering to know the deep relationship between environment and engineering. To use his her skills in environmental management, it becomes mandatory for a student to know the interactions amongst physics, chemistry and biology of atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere and biosphere. The contents of this book primarily written for engineering students offer basic knowledge on energy resources and their management. It describes the problems related with air pollution and its management. There is a detailed description of issues related with water and waste water treatment. Other problems viz. noise pollution, soil pollution and solid waste pollution have also been described with a proper selection of case studies. I believe this knowledge on environmental science will help the engineering students in developing their professional skills.

Preface
Although, the content and accuracy of the text of this book are the responsibility of the author, I have realized that it would have never seen the light of the day without the dedicated work of my sincere friends and students. I thank my wife Usha, for providing me emotional base and companionship. My children Sushmit, Shilpa, Shitij and grandson Avya deserve a special thanks for their patience and cooperation. Finally, I thank the management of I.K. International, New Delhi for giving the present shape to this book. S.V.S. RANA
