Bird diversity & status of water quality at the Mula Mutha bird site & understanding the correlation between bird diversity & water quality

Bird diversity & status of water quality at the Mula Mutha bird site & understanding the correlation between bird diversity & water quality

The quality of water is an important factor that affects the quality of life. In India, the largest source of the water pollution is the discharge of the untreated sewage into the river bodies, especially in urban cities. The present study is conducted to analyze the water quality status, bird diversity and population trend at the proposed Mula Mutha Bird site.

Achieving energy efficiency under the montreal protocol while combating the funding paradox

Achieving energy efficiency under the montreal protocol while combating the funding paradox

A In this paper we will be discussing the economics of energy efficiency in India and the leap from HFCs to non-ozone depleting energy efficient alternatives. While discussing this shift we will outline the current and future energy requirements that may be needed to run the currently existing refrigerant and cooling sectors, and the energy savings we may achieve upon using higher energy efficient and less polluting alternatives.
