Pollution is the introduction of contaminants into an environment that causes instability, disorder, harm or discomfort to the ECOSYSTEM i.e. physical systems or living organisms. Pollution can take the form of chemical substance or energy , such as noise, heat, or light. Pollutants, the elements of pollution, can be foreign substances or energies, or naturally occurring; when naturally occurring, they are considered contaminants when they exceed natural levels
TYPES OF POLLUTION:
There are 6 (six) types of pollution that are going to be discussed in this site, namely air, water, noise, land, radioactive, and thermal. Please proceed to the following links to learn anyone of them.
Air pollution is indication of disturbances to the composition of compounds in the atmosphere.
Sources and Methods We can classify major sources that lead to air pollution to the following categories: motor vehicle exhaust heat and power generation facilities industrial processes auto manufacturing fertilizers plants building demolition

solid waste disposal solvent evaporation volcanic eruption fuel production roadway construction electrical components manufacturing extraction of metals forest fires agriculture 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. Sources and Methods We can classify major sources that lead to water pollution to the following categories: petroleum products synthetic agricultural chemicals heavy metals hazardous wastes excess organic matter 2 Done by: ALISHAH AHMED CLASS: 5 .
sediment infectious organisms air pollution thermal pollution soil pollution 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 Sources and Methods We can classify major sources that lead to land pollution to the following categories: agriculture mining and quarrying sewage sludge dredged spoils household demolitions and constructions 3 Done by: ALISHAH AHMED CLASS: 5 .
industrial NOISE POLLUTION This particular pollution is ever increasing with due to the rise in the utilization of heavy duty machineries of industrial facilities and vehicles. synonymous to the increase in the standard of living in most countries. Sources and Methods We can classify major sources that lead to noise pollution to the following categories: road traffic noise air traffic rail traffic neighborhood and domestic noise incompatible land use industrial noises 4 Done by: ALISHAH AHMED CLASS: 5 . We make sounds practically every seconds of our day. but to the extend it has reached an unfavorable high intensity which had cause many disturbances and irritation to others emotionally that has adverse effects on our daily activities.
