This edited volume includes five chapters, each detailing recent advancements in earth science research. Chapter One explores the role of artificial intelligence in issuing more accurate and timely forecasts of summer monsoon rainfall. Chapter Two describes the process of recycling magnets to obtain rare earth elements as well as the potential economic, environmental, and strategic advantages of doing so. Chapter Three highlights the necessity of moving from a conventional linear economy to a circular economy in which the value of electronic waste is maximized through reusing, recycling, remanufacturing, and refurbishing. Chapter Four reviews and discusses the recent trends, developments, and future perspectives of direct and chemical recycling techniques of nonmetal fractions from electronic waste. Lastly, Chapter Five overviews the application of remote sensing and geographic information systems in agriculture and natural resource management.
