This edited volume consists of seven chapters, each describing a recent advancement in the field of environmental research. Chapter One reviews the ecologically beneficial, alternative technique of phycoremediation that involves the use of algal species for remediating the inorganic and organic effluents produced and released from shrimp aquaculture ponds. Chapter Two reviews the role of liquid chromatography techniques in the analysis of fullerenes and analyzes the occurrence of this family of compounds in the environment. Chapter Three argues that medical consequences of low-dose exposure to ionizing radiation are overestimated, which contributes to the under-utilization of nuclear power. Chapter Four deals with the current research activities related to different synthetic methods of g-C3N4 based nanocomposite materials and their application as an effective photocatalyst towards removing toxic organic pollutants such as dyes and phenols. Chapter Five presents a carbon sequestration design model system that can monitor, calculate and predict how much carbon can be absorbed by proposed plant species at a certain period. Chapter Six uses computational fluid dynamics to present recommendations for the most effective plantation strategies for urban vegetation to reduce pollution. Finally, Chapter Seven applies an importance-performance analysis to evaluate the condition of urban parks in Hong Kong.
