IIWQ Series of Technical and Policy Case Studies - 11. A critical evaluation of selected Persistent Inorganic and Organic Pollutants in the hydrological system: A case study on Keoladeo National Park (KNP), a UNESCO World Heritage Site in India
This work focuses on the Keoladeo National Park and its catchment areas, including satellite wetlands, which are at an increased risk of receiving toxic metals and pesticide residues. It critically analyzes the available information to generate databases on select toxic metals and organochlorine and organo-phosphorus pesticide residues, in and around the KNP, comprising the watershed area of the Banganga and Gambhir Rivers. Ultimately, it provides information on the potential persistent pollutants in hydrosphere (sources and occurrences), and contributes to the understanding on human and ecological implications in and around the UNESCO world heritage site in India.
