Environmental Monitoring - Conventional and Advanced Methods
Moving with Time in Environmental Monitoring

Environmental monitoring is a tool that helps us understand the state of the natural environment. It involves collecting and analyzing environmental data to assess environmental conditions and trends. The career scope in environmental monitoring is vast, spanning fields like environmental science, engineering, remote sensing, and policy. Professionals in this domain analyze data, develop strategies, and implement solutions to address environmental challenges such as pollution, climate change, and biodiversity loss. From monitoring air and water quality to designing conservation plans, careers in environmental monitoring offer opportunities to make a tangible impact on safeguarding our planet's health and sustainability.  Artificial intelligence (AI) can be used for environmental monitoring by analyzing large amounts of data, identifying trends, and making judgments based on those findings and is being widely used in the field.
