Introduction to Environmental Geology Total views (449)  
Environmental Earth science deals with the interrelationship of the various earth processes, their consequences and the activities of man who forms the central figure in the environment scheme of things. The Environmental Earth science embraces coordinated and integrated studies and the application of geology for the improvement and presentation of the environment through a more judicious use of n ......

Identifying Minerals Total views (446)  
A mineral is a naturally occurring solid chemical substance formed through biogeochemical processes, having characteristic chemical composition, highly ordered atomic structure, and specific physical properties. By comparison, a rock is an aggregate of minerals and/or mineraloids and does not have a specific chemical composition.

Rocks Total views (444)  
The Earth's outer solid layer, the lithosphere, is made of rock. In general rocks are of three types, namely, igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic. The scientific study of rocks is called petrology, and petrology is an essential component of geology. The three main ways rocks are formed Sedimentary rocks are formed through the gradual accumulation of sediment: Metamorphic rocks are rocks which on ......

Soil Total views (447)  
Soils are vital, fragile, finite natural resources that are essential for the sustained production of food and fiber. Soils, however, are subject to degradation and erosion when mismanaged. Between 1950 and 1993, grain area per person worldwide decreased from 0.58 to 0.33 acres (0.23 to 0.13 hectares). As human populations increase, soil resources are used more intensively, with increasing probabi ......

Natural Resources Total views (443)  
Our environment provides us with a variety of goods and services necessary for our day to day lives. These natural resources include, air, water, soil, minerals, along with, the climate and solar energy, which form the non-living or 'abiotic' part of nature. The 'biotic' or living parts of nature consists of plants and animals, including microbes. Plants and animals can only survive as communities ......

Depletion of Natural Resource Total views (444)  
In recent years, the depletion of natural resources has become a major focus of governments and organizations such as the United Nations (UN). This is evident in the UN's Agenda 21 Section Two which outlines the necessary steps to be taken by countries to sustain their natural resources. The depletion of natural resources is considered to be a sustainable development issue.

Land Use Planning - Terrain Evaluation Total views (447)  
Land use planning (LUP) is an iterative process based on the dialogue amongst all stakeholders aiming at the negotiation and decision for a sustainable form of land use in rural areas as well as initiating and monitoring its implementation. Or Land-use planning has been defined as "the systematic assessment of land and water potential, alternative patterns of land use and other physical, social an ......

Geological Features of India and Karnataka Total views (445)  
In geological history the various parts of Karnataka submerged three times in ocean and because Of this schist and pre Cambrian rocks are formed. In this place between Paleozoic and Mesozoic era stable land were formed with villages and hilly regions. In the northern part he basalt rocks were formed due to volcanic activity between Mesozoic and Cenozoic era. Laterite clay and other rocks found in ......

Earth's Processes - Earth's Interior Total views (469)  
Earth is a dynamic evolving system. Earth's environmental segments like lithosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere and biosphere involve in many complex set of interactions, The earth's internal processes is one of the important dynamic systems which generate tremendous stress on the outer shell of the globe and which give rise to the destruction or deformation of surface features and structures, These ......

Catastrophic Geological Hazards Total views (470)  
Human, and particularly industrial, societies are increasingly susceptible to the affects of catastrophic geologic phenomena such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, flooding, etc. These events have significant impacts in terms of lives lost, homes destroyed and regional economies disrupted. Recent events clearly illustrate the profound impacts such events have on society. Because of the inter-con ......

Disaster Management Total views (471)  
Disaster Management is the discipline of dealing with risks. It is a discipline that involves preparing, supporting, and rebuilding society when natural or human - made disasters occur. Effective disaster management relies on thorough integration of emergency plans at all levels of government and non - government involvement. It is common to place the responsibility for governmental emergency mana ......

Disaster Mitigation Total views (469)  
'Disaster' is defined as a crisis situation causing wide spread damage which far exceeds our ability to recover. Thus, by definition, there cannot be a perfect ideal system that prevents damage, because then it would not be a disaster. It has to suffocate our ability to recover. Only then it can be called as 'disaster'. Disasters are not totally discrete events. Their possibility of occurrence, ti ......

Environmental Geochemistry - Concepts of Major, Trace and Ree Total views (469)  
Environmental Geochemistry is the application of chemical principles to predicting the fate of organic and inorganic pollutants at earth's surface and in the atmosphere. Trace elements in man and other organisms are those that occur in quantities less than 1/100 of percent. They include are non metals (such as Iodine, Fluorine and Selenium) and metals (Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Cu, Zn, Mo and also Sr & Ni). ......

Geochemical Cycles and Dispersion Patterns Total views (469)  
The disturbance of equilibrium necessary in Clarke's concept of changing chemical systems can be caused by a static change in the temperature and pressure within a closed system or by a dynamic movement of material into new chemical and physical environments. In nature, closed systems are rarely if ever found; virtually all geologic processes involve a certain amount of movement of material.

Biochemical Factors in Environmental Health Total views (469)  
The term of special interest to us - the geological environment - is of relatively more recent origin. It refers to the upper layer of the lithosphere as an integral component of the environment of life. The part of the given environment accessible to human activity is made up of the following five components: solid rocks, loose soil, groundwater, natural gases, and microorganisms. All of these co ......

Possible Effects of Imbalance of Some Trace Elements Total views (479)  
The list of harmful substances in the geological environment for the most part consists of medium - heavy and heavy elements of Mendeleyev periodic system, some of which are strongly toxic or radioactive. The cycles of movement of heavy and harmful elements through the geological environment and through the hydrosphere are associated with inorganic substances, stabilization of such substances, and ......
