Special Issue on: "Monitoring, Fate and Health Risk of Environmental Pollutants"

Guest Editor: Dr. Khaiwal Ravindra, University of Antwerp, Belgium

There is a growing concern over environmental issues and problems as a large number of people are suffering due to the negative effect of environmental pollutants in various environmental matrices. To provide safe drinking water is still a challenge, especially in developing world. Natural sources of water such as rivers are being continuously polluted by major drains and sewage discharge from various cities and industrial effluents. The air quality in the major cities is becoming deleterious because of increasing number of motor vehicles and poor control for emission. Furthermore, these problems are becoming more intense with the increase in population.

Therefore, the prevention, control and abatement of various environmental pollutants have become an urgent need, which requires the knowledge of the nature, source and extent of pollution. Additionally, the monitoring, identification and characterisation of the various pollutants in different environmental matrices will be an aid to understanding their possible implications for health effects.
