Description of the cover page:
An approach to solar driven hydrogen generation will be to couple an electrolyzer to a photovoltaic device for which it is imperative to design highly active, stable and inexpensive oxygen evolution reaction electrocatalysts with porous three-dimensional electrode architecture. Metallic interlayers within such composite electrode assemblies not only provide effective electron percolation pathways but also modulate the electronic structure of the active electrocatalysts.

All the figures depicted on the cover page are a part of the review articles included in this publication. They depict various phases of water such as rainfall distribution(India); remote sensing application for soil moisture prediction (USA) and also flood prone areas (India); climate change effect on water resources leading to floods (Australia) as well as on water resources addressing both quantity and quality issues (India); monitoring of groundwater driven agriculture through satellites (India) and also complex urban water distribution system (India). Since this is an UN mandated 2013 International year of water co-operation, this logo is also shown (with permission).
Inspired form the ‘Lord of the Rings’ the image depicts the birth of the nervous system in the middle. The neural tube flanked by a pair of somites with the notochord on one side and the future epithelium on the other is shown. The three large neurons surrounding the ring illustrate the ultimate manifestation of the units that will build the brain. The original message of Sauron has been replaced with “giving thought to life”.
