“ contamination of the earth's environment with materials that interfere with human health, the quality of life, or the natural functioning of ecosystems".
wrong substances in a wrong quantity in the wrong time and at the wrong place;
agent which causes imbalances in the earth’s ecological equilibrium.
Types There are 6 (six) types of pollution that are going to beharmful to human being: Air Pollution Water Pollution Land Pollution Noise Pollution Radioactive Pollution Thermal Pollution
Air Pollution :-
excess emission of gases/vapors into atmosphere
saturation of chemical compounds/particulates.
We can classify major sources that lead to air pollution to the following categories:
Motor vehicle exhaust
Heat and power generation facilities
Solid waste disposal
Electrical components manufacturing
Extraction of metals
Water Pollution :- Water pollution is contamination of water by foreign matter that deteriorates the quality of the water. Water pollution covers pollutions in liquid forms like ocean pollution and river pollution. As the term applies, liquid pollution occurs in the oceans, lakes, streams, rivers, underground water and bays, in short liquid-containing areas..
We can classify major sources that lead to water pollution to the following categories:
synthetic agricultural chemicals
excess organic matter
Land Pollution :-
Revered to as soil pollution, land pollution involves the following mechanism:
Deposition of solid waste
Accumulation of non-biodegradable materials
Toxification of chemicals into poisons
Alteration of soil chemical composition (imbalance of chemical equilibrium to soil medium)
By as much, land pollution of this has amass globally, everyday threatening the very foundation and mechanical support of every matter on earth.
Sources and Methods :-
We can classify major sources that lead to land pollution to the following categories:
