'Detergent phosphates cause for frothing at lakes' 28.3.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Researchers from IISc have called upon the state and central governments to ban or limit the presence of phosphates in detergents and floor cleaners in the wake of the increasing frothing in Bellandur and Varthur lakes. A recent study by a team of researchers from Energy and Wetlands Group, IISc, shows that the presence of phosphates and nitrates is leading to the frothing. Prof T V Ramachandra of the Group is the lead author of the research paper — Foaming or Algal Bloom in Water bodies of India: Remedial Measures-Restrict Phosphate (P) based Detergents — released this month. The study points out that algal bloom or frothing is a consequence of nutrient enrichment (nitrate and phosphate) due to untreated sewage (mostly from households and detergents) and causes pollution, leading to algal blooms. The study shows that phosphate content in Varthur lake goes up to 1.263 mg/litre in some places, which is high. The phosphate in the foam is 74.59 mg/l. "Ideally, there should not be phosphate ...

Reviving the natural coastal guards 27.3.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The biodiversity of Karnataka is often represented by depicting the Western Ghats and the tigers. While the importance of both cannot be undermined, there is also the 320-km-long coastline that the state boasts of, with its magnificent rivers, lagoons, bay areas, creeks, and beaches. It is amidst this habitable conglomeration of saline waters from the seas and fresh water from the rivers, where the mangroves, the floating forests, thrive. These forests may not be as magnanimous as the more famous mangrove ecosystem of eastern India, the Sunderbans. However, the mangrove patches of Karnataka are a veritable spectacle, proving their worth through the ecological good they are bringing to the area, and the growing economic value. Some of the best locations to find mangroves in Karnataka are Swarna, Sita, Kodi, Gangoli, Aghanashini and Kali rivers, and towards the mouth of Haladi-Chakra-Kollur rivers. As the rivers and several small rivulets originating from the Western Ghats make their way towards the ...
