Series: Advances in Environmental Research
BISAC: SCI026000

The authors of this book examine the latest developments in environmental research. Chapters include numerical simulation of chemical spills and assessment of environmental impacts; some ontological reflections on current environmental justice Research; nudges as an alternative to economic market-based instruments in environmental regulation policies; potentialities of biochars from different biomasses for climate change abatement by carbon capture and soil amelioration; electrospun nanofibers affinity membranes for water hazards remediation; hydrogeochemical and stable isotope monitoring and numerical modelling of groundwater resource in Eastern Georgia to secure stability and quality of water supply; risks and hazards of gully erosion in a cold environment; and wheat rusts in Azerbaijan.
