Air pollutionAir pollution are definedasthe “presence of one ormoreontaminants orpollutantsubstances in theatmosphere thatcauses theharmful effect on thehumanhealth, plant &animal”.
Types of Air pollution1. PRIMARY POLLUTANAT2. SECONDARY POLLUTANT1. PRIMARY POLLUTANATPrimary Pollutants: These areemitted directly from thepoint source (identifiable sources)e.g.carbon monoxide (CO),oxides of nitrogen (NOx),oxides of sulphur (SOx),Hydrocarbons, Radioactivesubstances etc.
2. SECONDARY POLLUTANTSecondary Pollutants: These are formed byinteraction of primary pollutants with otherprimary pollutants or with some constituentse.g. ozone, peroxyacetyl nitrate(PAN), photochemical smog etc.Types of Air pollution1. PRIMARY POLLUTANAT2. SECONDARY POLLUTANT

• Air pollution produced by ships may alterclouds, affecting global temperatures.• Air pollution comes from both naturaland man made sources.• Motor vehicle emissions are one of theleading causes of air pollution.• Metals production factories, plasticsfactories, and other heavy industry.• Agricultural air pollution comes fromcontemporary practices which includespraying of pesticides and herbicides.CAUSES OF ENVIRONMENTALPOLLUTION

CFCS (CHLOROFLUOROCARBONS)Chlorofluorocarbons, commonly known as CFCs, are agroup of man-made compounds containingchlorine, fluorine and carbon. They are not foundanywhere in nature. The production of CFCs began inthe 1930s for the purpose of refrigeration. Sincethen they have been extensively utilized aspropellants in aerosols, as blowing agents in foammanufacture and in air conditioning. There are noremoval processes or sinks for CFCs in the lowestpart of the atmosphere called the troposphere. As aresult they are transported up into thestratosphere, between 10 to 50 km above the Earthssurface, where they are broken down by ultraviolet(UV) radiation from the Sun, releasing free chlorineatoms which cause significant o
OZONEThe ozone layer is a deeplayer in the , stratosphereencircling the Earth, that haslarge amounts of ozone in it.The layer shields the entireEarth from much of theharmful ultraviolet radiationthat comes from thesun. Interestingly, it is also thisultraviolet radiationthat forms the ozone in thefirst place. Ozone is aspecial form of oxygen, madeup of three oxygen atoms
Acid rain"Acid rain" is a broad term referring to a mixture of wet and drydeposition (deposited material) from the atmosphere containing higherthan normal amounts of nitric and sulfuric acids. The precursors, orchemical forerunners, of acid rain formation result from both naturalsources, such as volcanoes and decaying vegetation, and man-madesources, primarily emissions of SULFUR DIOXIDE (SO2) and NITROGENOXIDES (NOX)
