The growing concerns over availability of clean water have been elucidated in this insightful book. Water pollution is a significant problem globally that requires ongoing investigation and revision of water resource policy at all levels - from international level to individual aquifers and wells. It has been implied that it is the leading worldwide cause of deaths and diseases, and that it accounts for the deaths of more than 14,000 people on a daily basis. In addition to the severe water pollution problems in developing countries, industrialized countries keep struggling with pollution problems as well. Water is commonly referred to as polluted when it is flawed by anthropogenic contaminants and either does not support human usage, such as drinking water, and/or undergoes a marked change in its capability to support its constituent biotic communities, such as fish. Natural phenomena like volcanoes, algae blooms, storms and earthquakes also cause notable changes and shifts in the water quality and the ecological status of water. In course of time, most water pollutants are carried by rivers into the oceans.
Laser processing of solid materials has been commonly performed in gas ambient. Having the workpiece immersed into liquid, having a liquid film on it, or soaking the material with liquid gives several advantages such as removal of the debris, lowering the heat load on the workpiece, and confining the vapour and plasma, resulting in higher shock pressure on the surface.
This volume collects essays from academics and practitioners from a diversity of areas and perspectives in order to discuss water security at various levels and to illuminate the central idea of water security: its focus on the individual. Beginning with the big picture, this book aims to illustrate the depth of the water security crisis and its interconnections with other aspects of societal development. It particularly draws a connection to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and discusses that challenges faced in meeting the 17 sustainability development goals (SDG) by the year 2030. Moving from international to domestic and community perspectives, this book provides a unique analysis of issues and solutions to the water issues we face today in light of the ever looming global changes brought on by climate change.
Over the past few decades the recognition of our common need for water has increased, as policymakers have sought to place more focus on the individual within policy. After the recognition of water and sanitation as a fundamental human right by the United Nations General Assembly in 2010, there is increasing recognition of the individual as the building block for the struggle for water security. This reality also intersects with adverse impacts of global climate change, and the book responds to the broader question: will clean and safe water be available where we need it and when we need it in the future?
