Challenges in Environmental Science & Engineering, CESE-2009
This is the second conference on CESE series which is planned to be held annually in different cities of North Queensland. North Queensland is unique in the sense that it posses two of the World Heritage Listed Features - The Great Barrier Reef and the Tropical Rain Forest. While we could still enjoy the beauty of those features, we are also starting to observe the degradation in those features due to anthropogenic activities. Thus, it is ideal for the researchers, policy makers, academics, students and others who are active in contributing solutions to the questions posed by the environmental challenges to meet and share their visions in Townsville - one of the best cities in the Tropical Paradise.
