Environmental science (notes)
Environmental studies is a multidisciplinary academic field which systematically studies human interaction with the environment in the interests of solving complex problems. Environmental studies brings together the principles of the physical sciences, commerce/economics and social sciences so as to solve contemporary environmental problems. It is a broad field of study that includes the natural environment, the built environment, and the sets of relationships between them. .this notes covers all the important topics of the chapter.Its helpful for the quick revision for the chapter. This chapter was taught to the students of first year of DELHI TECHNOLOGICAL UNIVERSITY(one of the top engineering colleges of india). thank you :)
Every B.Tech first years have to study some subjects which they don't have any interest to. So that's why i have created few notes on the topic so that it would be easier for students to focus on their field of Interests. These notes will fetch you marks on the D-day and are point to point.
