Environmental Research Laboratory (ERL) at a Glance: Environmental Research Laboratory (ERL) was established in the year 1997 for the water quality Monitoring sub-project under Bhoj Wetland Project. The laboratory was notified as State Laboratory, declared vide Gazzete Notification No: F-5- 1-2000-XXXII Date: 19th May 2000 under Section 52 of Water (Prevention and Control of Pollution Act, 1974) and Section 28 of Air, (Prevention and Control of Pollution Act, 1981). The ERL is involved in following activities.

Facilities Available:ERL is equipped with the basic facilities required for analysis of physico-chemical and biological parameters of water.

Functional Activities:Water Quality Analysis of Important water bodies of Madhya Pradesh:
Monitoring of ecosystems is an integral part of environmental management. The abiotic and biotic factors that determine the health of the environment are dynamic and their periodic monitoring is necessary for assessment of the condition of the environment. The Environmental Research Laboratory is involved in water quality analysis of important water bodies of Madhya Pradesh under Lake Atlas Project. ERL also conducted a detail analysis of water quality of various places of River Narmada in the year 2015.

Training: The ERL has been running the following training programs:

Lab Visit and Orientation Program: This is a one day lab visit and orientation program, intended to give the students a brief exposure about the general functioning of the laboratory and instruments used in the environmental analysis. This one day program includes the demonstration of different water quality parameters, some important instruments. The training fee for the program is Rs. 200/- per student for demonstration of analysis and instruments, followed by class room session.

Short term Job Oriented Training: This is a short term training program intended to give an exposure about some general aspects of water quality monitoring and other environmental analysis. The training duration is of 5 days and gives an exposure of basic analytical techniques and a brief overview of the instruments being used in the environmental analysis. The training fees for the program is Rs. 1,000/- per student which includes field visit, lecture by experts in the field of environmental analysis, demonstration of analytical techniques and instrumentation.

Advanced Job Oriented Training Module: This training module has been designed to give a detailed exposure in various aspects of environmental sciences, exposure in various aspects of environmental sciences like visit to the field, lectures and demonstration of analytical techniques, hands down training on sophisticated instrumentation. The duration of the training program is of 10 days and the fees is Rs. 2,100/-.

Hands on Training Program of Laboratory Techniques and Advanced Instrumentation: This training program is specifically intended to give exposure in the field of advanced instrumentation and laboratory techniques. The training includes detailed theory classes, demonstration and hands on training on instruments like UV-vis spectrophotometer, image analysis system and other instruments used in the environmental analysis water. The duration of the training course is 10 days and the fees is Rs 2,100/-.

One month short term project work: The one month short term project work has been designed to give the students of UG and PG classes a feel of research work. This project work lets the students chose a problem from the environmental field and carries out a mini research project on the same. The duration of the training program is of one month and the fees for the same in Rs. 2,000/-.

Dissertation: The dissertation is an essential part of the PG curriculum in almost all universities. The ERL is facilitating students to carry out the dissertation work. The dissertation includes identification of problems related to environment field, and carry out an extensive dissertation work on the chosen topic. ERL provides infrastructural facility for the collection of samples, their analysis and the guidance for the research work and report preparation during the dissertation. The duration for the dissertation varies from 2 months to 6 months with a fee of Rs. 2000/- per month.
