Emerging Aquatic Contaminants: One Health Framework for Risk Assessment and Remediation in the Post COVID-19 Anthropocene is divided into four main sections. The first section highlights various sources and pathways of emerging contamination, including their distribution, occurrence, and fate in the aquatic environment. The second section provides detailed insight into emerging contaminants’ mass flow and behavior in the various sphere of the subsurface environment. Possible treatment strategies, including bioremediation and natural attenuation, are discussed in section three. Ecotoxicity, relative environmental risk, human health risk, current policies, guidelines, and regulations on emerging contaminants are systematically analyzed in the fourth/final section.Emerging Aquatic Contaminants serves as a pillar for future studies, with the aim of bio-physical remediation and natural attenuation of biotic and abiotic pollution, emphasizing present and future challenges. As such, the content provides a unique platform for scientists including engineering sciences, biogeochemical sciences, hydro geochemistry, toxicological sciences, social sciences, environmental policy and governance etc. to exchange ideas and share information at multiple levels on management of emerging contaminants, degradation of freshwater quality and indicators of ecological degradation.

Author Biography

Dr. Manish Kumar is an assistant professor at Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar, Gujarat, India. He earned his PhD in Environmental Engineering from the University of Tokyo, Japan. He has more than >130 international journal publications. He is the recipient of recognitions like Expert Panel for UNEP on antimicrobial resistance, Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (FRSC), Best Research Award at 4th IWA Asia Pacific Water Young Professional Conference, Global Change Research (GCR) Grant from Asia Pacific Network, DST young scientist grant, JSPS Research Fellowship, Centre of Excellence (CoE) Young Researcher Fund, and Linnaeus-Palme Grant from SIDA, Sweden. He renders the editorial service to several reputed journals. Dr. Sanjeeb Mohapatra, after fishing his Ph.D. degree at Environmental Science and Engineering Department, IIT Bombay, India, joined the Environmental Research Institute, National University of Singapore (NUS), Singapore, to pursue his postdoctoral degree. His research interest broadly covers the monitoring of emerging contaminants (ECs), photo-degradation and enzymatic degradation of ECs, and the role of dissolved organic matter in deciding the fate of such contaminants. He is a recipient Newton-Bhabha Fellowship jointly awarded by DST, India, and British Council, U.K. He is also a recipient of DST-INSPIRE fellowship offered by DST, India. Dr. Mohapatra also won several international and local awards for his research work for the last couple of years and has many publications in reputed journals, book chapters, and refereed conferences to his credit. Dr. Karrie A. Weber is Director of the Microbiology and Associate Professor in the School of Biological Sciences with a joint Appointment in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Dr. Weber is also a Fellow of the Daugherty Water for Food Global Institute and member of the Child Health Research Institute. Dr. Weber completed her Ph.D. at the University of Alabama and continued postdoctoral training in the Department of Microbiology at Southern Illinois University and the Department of Plant and Microbial Biology at the University of California at Berkeley. Following her postdoctoral training Dr. Weber held a professional research position at the University of California at Berkeley before starting her position at the University of Nebraska Lincoln. Her research has focused on the identification and description of microbial metabolic processes that couple carbon, nitrogen, and metal/radionuclide biogeochemical processes in natural and anthropogenic systems that impact human and environmental health
