The present investigation, focused on the estimation of the sediment pool of the blue carbon stocks of the mangrove species Avicennia officinalis (Indian Mangrove) in selected locations of Vembanad lake. Sediment core samples were collected in post monsoon (October – November 2017) and pre monsoon (February – March 2018). The treatments included ‘aged’, ‘recent’, ‘...

Climate change is one of the serious issues faced currently by humanity. The uncontrolled emission of Green House Gases play a major role in global warming, which eventually leads to climate change. The unscientific methods of waste disposal has serious environmental impacts by continuous emission of GHGs leading to global warming. Households constitute the bas...

Globally, one of the most severe impacts of climate change has been identified as the increase in the number of extreme events. The impact of two extreme events, the South India Flood 2015 in Tamil Nadu (TN) and tropical cyclone Ockhi which hit the Kerala and south TN coast in 2017 on the marine fisheries was studied. Analysis of impact on 13 craft-gear combination...

Global warming due to increased concentration of greenhouse gases (GHGs) is one of the important concerns of mankind today. The global soils store about 2500 Gt of carbon which is approximately 3.3 times the atmospheric carbon pool (760 Gt) and 4.5 times than that of the biotic pool (560 Gt) . Kerala has a rich forest cover of which 10 per cent is occupied by f...

The amount of carbon in the atmosphere has increased by 30 per cent. The rising temperatures and carbon dioxide concentration and uncertainty in rainfall associated with climate change may have direct relationship with increased levels of carbon dioxide. One proposed method to reduce atmospheric carbon dioxide is to increase the global storage of carbon in soil...

Global warming is real. Polar ice is melting. Sea level is rising. One-third of plant and animal species is likely to be extinct in the decades to come. Rise in atmospheric temperature and sea surface temperature is likely to influence the atmospheric and environmental processes. Keeping this in view, present study was aimed with the objectives viz., to examine the...

The food security of more than half of the world population depends on rice. Studies suggest that global climate change is going to affect the food production through temperature and water stress and this affect the rice production around the globe. The present study tried to elucidate the influence of varying soil moisture status on rice productivity and eval...

Lakshadweep is the only atoll type reefs in the territory of India. Since Indian Ocean is the warmest among tropical oceans, Indian corals reefs are vulnerable to the impact of climate change. Coral connectivity helps in maintaining the resilience capacity of sensitive coral reefs. However, shifts in global temperature will strongly influence the period of larval d...

The global climate change is pushing marine ecosystems towards extinction. The sensitive ecosystems like coral reefs will be the first few to take the imminent impacts of an increase in temperature. Unlike any other oceans, Northern Indian Ocean(NIO) is thought to be highly vulnerable due to its typical topography with the massive Eurasian Continent in the north. T...
