K.S. Valdiya (Author)
Synopsis

The first of its kind to be applicable to the Indian environment, this comprehensive reference work uses the backdrop of geology to weave together components of earth process mechanisms, ecological systems, usage of earth resources such as land, soil, water and minerals and accelerated activities of people looking for facilities and engineering techniques to contain adverse consequences on the biosphere. Multidisciplinary in coverage and holistic in approach, the book discusses the causes of degradation of our environment alongside the implications of resource depletion and suggests ways and means of combating the problems.
