Journal of Environmental Hazards aimed at addressing a wide range of environmentally hazardous events such as natural and manmade disasters and their immediate as well as long term effects on the ecosystem. The key goal of the journal is to highlight the impact of environmental hazards on human health and the ecosystem at large. The journal is keen in raising the awareness levels of its readers and users on various issues related to vulnerability and the risk involved due to the hazardous substances present in the environment.
The journal prominently projects research in areas including but not limited to pollution, transport and fate of pollutants in the environment, heavy metals and organic compounds in the environment, industrial ecology, physical hazards, biological hazards, chemical hazards, planetary hazards, hazardous waste management, bioremediation of contaminated sites, deforestation, global warming, overpopulation, ecological and human risk assessment, environmental impact assessment, improved energy management, physical alteration of the natural environment, and improper management of human waste.
The Journal of Environmental Hazards caters to a vast section of readers including: disaster management experts, waste management personnel, environmental activists, health practitioners, climate change experts, ecologists, toxicologists, microbiologists, environmental advocates, NGOs and policy-makers, keen on preserving the ecological balance.
The Journal aims to publish the most reliable and complete source of information on discoveries and current developments in the form of research articles, review articles, case reports and short communications. All the articles are peer reviewed and published under the guidance of the Editorial Board, on an open access platform.
A hazard is a cause which has the potential to harm environment. Man-made hazards have negative effect on the environment which in-turn effect the ecosystem by damaging the life-cycle. Man-made hazards are life threating. Releasing fossil fuel from vehicles, domestic consumption and industries pollute air, water and soil. Industrial emissions, deforestation, urbanization releasing greenhouse gases, causing global warming, delayed monsoons, rising sea levels and natural calamities.
Space debris is now one of the major threats to living beings in recent years due to unhealthy rush to launch satellites and spacecrafts into the earth’s orbit. Defunct, old satellites and rockets add to the space junk, which can cause a potential threat to humans. These debris can enter the Earth’s atmosphere by damaging the ozone layer and also can harm living things if they fall without been burned up in the atmosphere.
Oil Spill and plastic is a major threat for the marine ecosystem. Increase in sea traffic for trade, drilling, rigging and accidents lead to oil spills in water bodies. These can kill seabirds, mammals, shellfish and other organisms they coat. Plastic on other hand had caused a major threat to the marine ecosystem. All marine animals are now subjected to entanglement and suffocation due to indiscriminate use and disposal of plastic waste from different sources which are life threating.
A pollutant is a substance or particles introduced in the environment due to human action (chemicals, pesticides) or natural (CO2) that causes undesired effect to ecosystem. This unwanted particle can cause short-term (or) long-term damage to plants, animals and humans. Pollutants may be biodegradable but the end products of few degrading pollutant are also harmful for the environment as they contaminate air, water, and soil.
Natural Hazards are phenomena that occur as a result of various natural weather or climatic forces and cause threat to living beings and the environment. These encompass geological and meteorological phenomena such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions releasing poisonous gases, and motel lava that threatens the fertility of lands, suffocation due to excess of CO2 caused by the wildfires due to which many animals are chocked to death, cyclonic storms, floods, droughts, and landslides lead to displacement, loss of men and material.
Waste management is an obligatory commitment to manage waste from its commencement to its final disposal. Collection of waste and its transport, treatment and dispose it by strictly adhering to the regulations in waste management. Different disposal and regulatory mechanism are applied for recycling and treating solid, liquid, or any form of waste. Waste Management deals with all types of waste from forms, industries, biological, household, and special cases where it may pose a threat to human health. Waste management is intended to reduce adverse effects of waste on health, environment and aesthetics
