This book delves into the multidisciplinary nature of the environment and its relationship with public awareness, case studies, current issues, and natural changes. It also examines disaster management, mitigation, and the application of Remote Sensing and GIS in disaster management and environmental changes. Furthermore, the book emphasizes the importance of drawing long-term policies to address environmental pollution and disaster management. It also highlights other critical environmental issues such as environmental impact assessment studies, environmental health hazards, and ecological consequences related to the inter-linking of rivers in India. The book also covers natural disasters, including landslides, floods, flood control, earthquakes, and tsunamis.

The book is beneficial for students, researchers, and professionals in various fields such as biology, microbiology, environment, ecology, pedology, geology, geography, hydrology, remote sensing, social sciences, and other related disciplines who have an interest in the environment and disaster management. The book is divided into two parts, with Part I focusing on environmental changes, their causes, impacts, and assessment, and Part II discussing natural disasters, mitigation, management, and other related aspects.
