      Lake Volta covers about 8, square kilometers (3, square miles), an area larger than the U.S. state of Delaware. Lake Volta ranks fourth in the world in terms of volume, the total amount of water in the lake. The world's biggest reservoir by volume is also in Africa. Lake Kariba lies on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe.   Pesticides could influence biological communities in lakes, forcing changes from a clear-water, macrophyte-dominated state to a turbid state due to their effect on zooplankton or macrophytes [67,68]. As explained above, both point and diffuse pollution sources of pesticides, herbicides, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are usually.

    This book describes critical environmental issues that face coastal ocean and Great Lakes areas, including eutrophication, habitat modification, hydrologic and hydrodynamic disruption, exploitation of resources, toxic effects on ecosystems and humans, introduction of nonindigenous species, global climate change and variability, and shoreline.

The planet faces a variety of troubling issues that stem from man-made contamination. Many of these lead to environmental problems that are causing long-term damage to the earth’s ecosystem. The Global Issues website explains that the only way to control current environmental issues is to create sustainable development strategies and continue.

Lake Burley Griffin is an artificial lake in the centre of Canberra, the capital of was completed in after the Molonglo River—which ran between the city centre and Parliamentary Triangle—was dammed. It is named after Walter Burley Griffin, the American architect who won the competition to design the city of Canberra.

Griffin designed the lake with many geometric motifs. Man-Made Disasters: Man-made disasters are the result of carelessness or human errors during technological and industrial use. The disasters are in the form of accidents, which occur all of a sudden and take a huge toll on life and property.

Mostly such disasters cause injuries, diseases and casualties where they occur. An environmental problem arises whenever there is a change in the quality or quantity of any environmental factor which directly or indirectly affects the health and well-being of man in an adverse manner.

Environmental problems can be studied from two different viewpoints. One is simply to look for adverse effects without regard to their. Environment pollution is a wide-reaching problem and it is likely to influence the health of human populations is great.

This paper provides the insight view about the affects of environment pollution in the perspective of air pollution, water and land/ soil waste pollution on human by diseases and problems, animals and trees/ plants. The other environmental issues including pollution, waste management, deforestation, climate change and global warming are all associated with over-population.

Healthy lakes and their shores not only provide us with a number of environmental benefits but they influence our quality of life and they strengthen our economy.

Proper lake function can ease the impact of floods and droughts by storing large amounts of water and releasing it during shortages. Lakes also work to replenish groundwater.

The environmental impact of reservoirs comes under ever-increasing scrutiny as the global demand for water and energy increases and the number and size of reservoirs increases. Dams and reservoirs can be used to supply drinking water, generate hydroelectric power, increase the water supply for irrigation, provide recreational opportunities, and flood control.

Solutions to Environmental Pollution. Gas emission pollution is being mitigated in a variety of ways with car emission control, electric and hybrid vehicles and public transportation all major cities have successful implementation and decent public transportation in place, but the world is working on this issue constantly and we have managed to reduce emissions profoundly over the.

The Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin Water Resources Compact is a historic agreement among the eight Great Lakes states to protect Great Lakes water. The Compact, which came into force on December 8,protects wildlife and habitat from water diversions from the Great Lakes basin and promotes sound water management within the basin.
