ENCYCLOPAEDIA OF ENVIRONMENTAL SOIL AND MARINE POLLUTION
G.R. CHHATWAL
Encyclopaedia of Environmental Soil and Marine Pollution, organized in two volumes, is a veritable mine of authoritative information on the menacing soil and marine pollution conditions endangering plant and marine lives. Pollution is "the wrong amount of the wrong things in the wrong place at the wrong time". Soil connects the biosphere to a source of mineral elements in the lithosphere, the earth's rock mantle, to a source of gaseous elements in the atmosphere, and to a source of water from the hydrosphere. It plays critical roles in the earth's carbon, nitrogen, sulfur, and hydrologic cycles. Introduction by man, directly of indirectly, of substances or energy into the marine environment (including estuaries) resulting in such deleterious effects as harm to living resources, hazards to human health, hindrance to marine activities including fishing, impairment of quality for use of sea water and reduction of amenities.

The present encyclopaedia will prove useful and informative to researchers and teachers besides the general readers, policy planners and activities in the field of environment.

ENCYCLOPAEDIA OF ENVIRONMENTAL AGRICULTURAL POLLUTION AND ITS CONTROL
G.R. CHHATWAL
With the advancement of science and technology agricultural sector also adopted improved technology and chemical fertilizers, insecticides and pesticides. To feed the rapidly growing population, agriculture sector applied heavy quantity of chemicals-which, no doubt, resulted in record yield. But simultaneously grew the problem of food hazards, poisoning, air pollution, soil pollution etc.

This encyclopaedia compiles highly useful and scientific information on all aspects of environmental agricultural pollution.

The major themes discussed are: Concepts in Agriculture; Agricultural Pollution; Adverse Effects of Pesticides; Environmental Study of Pesticides, Polychlorinated Biphenyl is and other Chloro-organic Compounds Used in Agriculture; Lithosphere and Soil; Soil Salinity; Soil Physics; Soil Physical Condition and Plant Growth; Soil Kinetics; Soil Biochemistry; SO2. Effects on Plant Community Structure; Modeling Effects of SO2 on the Productivity and Growth of Plants; Genetic Variability in Growth Responses to SO2 Plant Response to SO2 and CO2; Nitrogen Oxides: Products of Combustion Processes that Constitute a Serious Hazard to Crops; Toward a Mechanistic Understanding of Plant Responses to SO2; Evaluation of the Impact of Inorganic Soil Pollutants on Consumers; The Influence of Dietary Composition on the Toxicity of Cadmium, Copper, Zinc and Lead to Animals; The Effect of Low Concentrations of Ambient Pollutants on the Growth and Yield of Group; Heavy Metal Pollution of Farms Near and Industrial Complex; SO2 Effects on the Growth of Native Plants; SO2 Effects on Tree Growth; SO2 Effects on the Productivity of Grass Species; SO2 Effects on Dicot Crops: Some Issues, Mechanisms, and Indicators; Irrigation and the Energy Economics of Water Management for Hydrologic Basins; A Cost-Benefit Analysis of Biogas Production in Rural India: Alternative to Energy Intensive Fertilizers: Prospects for Increasing Food Production in Less Developed Countries through Efficient Energy Utilization; Energy Reduction through Improved Irrigation Practices; Economic and Environmental Impacts of the Energy Crisis on Agricultural Production; Political Economy of Energy and Agriculture in the Third World etc.

ENCYCLOPAEDIA OF ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION AND ITS CONTROL
G.R. CHHATWAL, M.C. MEHRA, M. SATAKE, T. KATYAL, MOHAN KATYAL, T. NAGAHIRO
During the last thirty years or so a wave of the environmental consciousness and concern is being developed in India and other countries. This work is an effort to keep pace with the continuing rapid developments in all areas of environment. It includes different types of environmental pollutions such as air pollution, water pollution, noise pollution, thermal pollution, radiation pollution, land pollution, etc. Each topic covers the scientific discussion of each type of pollution, its adverse effects on the man and on environment and suggests many methods of its control. Each topic has been written, edited and compiled by a team of world renowned scientists. Historical and current statistics have been included mainly from Indian, Japanese, Canadian and American experiences in order to show the progress that has been made in the recent past in overcoming different types of pollution hazards.

This work will be of immense value to the students and teachers of environment and to scientists and engineers working on pollution problems besides the doctors, dentists, technicians, and nuclear plant designers.

ENCYCLOPAEDIA OF ENVIRONMENTAL ENERGY RESOURCES
G.R. CHHATWAL
Man has to depend mostly on nature and environment for energy resources. Due to excessive exploitation of natural energy resources, we are rapidly approaching severe 'Energy Crises.' Hence we have seriously to ponder over proper management of Environmental Energy Resources. The present Encyclopaedia in two volumes, a veritable mine of authoritative information, is most timely publication. Many important issues are systematically discussed with the help of diagrams, wherever necessary. Major topics dealt are: Introduction to Energy Sources; Energy Statistics; Thermo- dynamical Concept; Energy, Carbon Balance and Climate Change; Sources of Energy; Fuels Sources of Energy; Pollutants from Fuels and Their Emission Factors; Coal as a Sources of Energy; Fire Ecology; Energy from the Biomass; Biomass Burning; Personal and Portable Monitors for Major Biofuel Air Pollutants; Venyilation and Concentrations in Consumption of Fuels; Reducing Exposures: Fuels and Stoves; Oil and Natural Gas; Hydropower; Energy, Geothermal; Energy from the Wind; Energy from Streams and Oceans; Energy from the Atom; Nuclear Energy; Energy from the Sun; Energy Use in Agriculture and Changing Forestry; Impact of Migration of Energy Use; Impact of Migration on Energy Use; Dynamics of Energy Use in Household Sector; Energy in Industry and Transport; Energy Sources and Technologies: Hard Choices etc.

Besides the academic value, this Encyclopaedia will prove of utmost use for the environmental scientists, policy planners and activists in the field.
