Forms of pollution

  1. 1. FORMS Of POLLUTION Soil Contamination Air pollution Water pollution Radioactive contamination Noise pollution Light pollution Visual pollution
  2. 2. SOIL CONTAMINATION • Soil contamination or soil pollution as part of land degradation is caused by the presence of xenobiotic (human-made) chemicals or other alteration in the natural soil environment. It is typically caused by industrial activity, agricultural chemicals, or improper disposal of waste.
  3. 3. AIR POLLUTION • Air pollution is the introduction of particulates, biological molecules, or other harmful materials into the Earth's atmosphere, causing diseases, death to humans, damage to other living organisms such as animals and food crops, both the natural or the building environment. • Air pollution may come from anthropogenic or natural sources
  4. 4. WATER POLLUTION • Water pollution is the contamination of water bodies (e.g. lakes, rivers, oceans, aquifers and groundwater). This form of environmental degradation occurs when pollutants are directly or indirectly discharged into water bodies without adequate treatment to remove harmful compounds.
  5. 5. RADIOACTIVE CONTAMINATION • Radioactive contamination, also called radiological contamination, is the deposition of, or presence of radioactive substances on surfaces or within solids, liquids or gases (including the human body), where their presence is unintended or undesirable
  6. 6. NOISE POLLUTION • Noise pollution or noise disturbance is the disturbing or excessive noise that may harm the activity or balance of human or animal life. The source of most outdoor noise worldwide is mainly caused by machines and transportation systems, motor vehicles, aircraft, and trains.
  7. 7. LIGHT POLLUTION •Light pollution, also known as photopollution or luminous pollution, is excessive, misdirected, or obtrusive artificial light.
  8. 8. VISUAL POLLUTION • Visual pollution is an aesthetic issue and refers to the impact of pollution that impair one's ability to enjoy a vista or view. • Visual pollution disturbs the visual areas of people , creating negative changes in the natural environment
  9. 9. An Eco problem in our country We have just spoken of pollution, now let’s remember the toxic wastes that are hidden under the soil in the area close to Naples. Naples is a beautiful city in southern Italy but is strongly hit by 'soil pollution’. In fact this city is well known as the “ Land of the fires “( la terra dei fuochi). Pollution is bringing a strong unease among the population, since the people are increasingly falling ill , with different forms of cancer. WE MUST HELP OUR EARTH NOT to GET SICK BECAUSE IT Is OUR HOUSE…! Bressi Letizia Simio Concolino Samuele
