The first chapter of Advances in Environmental Research. Volume 60 by Daniel Figueira de Barros and Daniel Marcos Bonotto gives an overview on the way legistlation regarding geological repositories and the protection of the environment, human health, and living beings has evolved in France, Germany, Japan, and the USA. In the second chapter, Douglas Paton, PhD and Petra T. Buergelt, PhD discuss how a disaster risk reduction philosophy founded on social-environmental co-existence can aid in comprehending how people interpret environmental risks and make decisions to manage them. Next, the third chapter by Aleksey Sidorchuk centers on soil erosion in the East European Plain. In the fourth chapter, Makiko Nakataa and Sonoyo Mukaib present regional and seasonal variations in atmospheric dust particles using satellite measurements and model simulations. Maria Fernanda Kauling, Pitagoras J. Bindé, PhD, and Flavio Augusto Serra Kauling methodically analyze the environmental indicators application process in the fifth chapter. Following this, the sixth chapter by Isabella Grishkan, Pnina Schlesinger, and Yaacov Mamane discusses the qualitative and quantitative facets of dust-associated culturable fungal communities sampled during dust events 2004-2005 in Haifa, Israel, comparing these with the communities sampled in the neighboring days. In the seventh chapter by Shaila Islam Satu, M. Abul Kashem, and Mohammad Zabed Hossain, data on the extent of soil salinity in selected areas of Bangladesh is presented. Afterwards, the eighth chapter by José Ignacio Rojas-Sola and María Isabel Alba-Dorado investigates the theoretical ideologies and advancements made at the international level relative to environmental research from the second half of the 20th century to today. In the ninth chapter, Lubos Matejicek provides an environmental assessment involving the processing and analysis of spatial data concerning renewable resources. Sandrine Gaymard focuses on associating traffic psychology with sustainable development in the tenth chapter. In the eleventh and final chapter, Xiaofeng Yang and Xingping Wen present a study determining the effect of sky view factor to land surface temperature using remote sensing imaging. (Imprint: Nova)
