Environmental Psychology attempts to study the impact of environmental changes on human behaviour and vice-versa. Environmental scientists monitor the quality of the environment, interpret the impact of human actions on ecosystems, and develop strategies and management procedures for restoring balance in ecosystems. Environmentalist™ is a broad philosophy and social movement focused on a chief concern for the conservation and improvement of the natural environment and human civilization.
Three essential components of environment—air, water and land, technically known as atmosphere, hydrosphere and lithosphere altogether comprise biosphere. Physical and biological factors of environment influence the survival, growth, development and reproduction of organisms. Pollution in biosphere caused by the agents affect the life of organism and dissolute ecological balance. This book inscribes the different facets of the Physical World, Atmospheric Sound, Atmospheric Optics, Climate, Present and Past, Weather Control, Glaciers and Sea Ice, Nutrient Cycles, Population, Resources and Environment, Impact of Biotechnology, Ecology of Microbial Beds, Disruption of Ecological Systems, Insecticides and Marine Food Chain, Herbicides in Ecosystems.
The present volume Environmental Psychology attempts to examine the cause of some of those dreadly environmental problems and search for their approximate solution.
