How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

The abundance of micro(nano)plastics in natural ecosystems is a crucial global challenge, as these small-sized plastic particles originate from land-based and marine-based activities and are widely present in marine, freshwater, and terrestrial ecosystems. Micro(nano)plastics can significantly be reduced through various methods, such as biological,...
Microplastics (MPs) and nanoplastics (NPs) are key indicators of the plasticine era, widely spread across different ecosystems. MPs and NPs become global stressors due to their inherent physicochemical characteristics and potential impact on ecosystems and humans. MPs and NPs have been exposed to humans via various pathways, such as tap water, bott...
In India in recent decades, groundwater has emerged as a principal source for meeting drinking and irrigation needs. As a result, groundwater depletion and over-extraction are acknowledged as major concerns. Different policy interventions are being explored to augment the management of aquifers. Aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) is one such interv...
Abstract: In India in recent decades, groundwater has emerged as a principal source for meeting drinking and irrigation needs. As a result, groundwater depletion and overextraction are acknowledged as a major concern. Different policy interventions are being explored to augment the management of aquifers. Aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) is one s...
Growing dependence on groundwater to fulfill the water demands has led to continuous depletion of groundwater levels and, consequently, poses the maintenance of optimum groundwater and management challenge. The region of South Bihar faces regular drought and flood situations, and due to the excessive pumping, the groundwater resources are declining...
Microplastic disposal into riverine ecosystems is an emergent ecological hazard that mainly originated from land-based sources. This paper presents a comprehensive review on physical processes involved in microplastics transport in riverine ecosystems. Microplastic transport is governed by physical characteristics (e.g., plastic particle density, s...
Plastic pollution is ubiquitous in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. Plastic waste exposed to the environment creates problems and is of significant concern for all life forms. Plastic production and accumulation in the natural environment are occurring at an unprecedented rate due to indiscriminate use, inadequate recycling, and deposits in land...
● To study the rate of infiltration, the quantity of storage/recovery and transmissivity processes of contamination associated with aquifer storage and recovery (ASR). ● To assess the effectiveness of the recharge pits (as part of ASR) technologies for conjunctive use in the agriculture sector in South Bihar. ● To estimate user satisfaction, economic benefits, social acceptance and opportunities for the spread of recharge technologies through government schemes and market-based mechanisms.
