different kinds of pollution There are differents kinds of pollution that are caused by industries.

We will inform you on a few kinds of pollution. I should like to tell al kinds of pollution buth it would be to big for this site and because of a lack of time. Below this paragraph we will inform you on the worst pollutions caused by the industries air pollution The first and the number one on the list of the worst pollution caused with help of the industries is air pollution. Because of this pollution the greenhouse effects makes a big step to his completion. In another part of this site we will tell you everything about the enviromental changes caused by industries. One of the effects that is a part of the air pollution is air clogging. This is the direct consequence of human activities. There are a lot of sources of clogging, among which industrial activities and cars. Clogging manifests himself in the form of smog. This term is also used for rains which is exclusively caused by polluting substances. At dry circumstances clogging will cause a kind of rain, which is in fact low a smoke. By smoke, which has been built from a lot of small particles, the number of areas of smog increases enormously in air. Some substances can cause acid smog, which damages bldg. and a large threat forms for people with breathing difficulties. The combustion of fossile fuels can contribute also to the greenhouse impact. waterpollution By always increasing pollution it becomes continuously more difficult to guarantee the fundamental right to water. A lot of causes of water pollution can be pointed at the industry, but also agriculture and the households are contributing to clogging. By means of the industry come oil mineral, chemical products, phosphates and nitrates in water. The most important causes of clogging in the agriculture sector are the poisons and the suppression resources. A large part of the fertilizer presses in the ground and is possible in the long run a byeffect has on the quality of water winning Water has a self-cleaning capacity that ensures the natural break of a number of substances. Water is however too much polluted, then the selfcleaning capacity is damaged of it and the functioning of the existing ecosystem is disturbed. Consequence: the quality of water goes reverse. It is locigal that water can't clean up many chemical sources from the industry and bottles of poisons dumped into the water.

Tarapur industrial Area Location: Maharashtra, India Region: South Asia, Pollutants: Heavy Metals, Chemicals Source: Chemical Manufacturing Transmission: water, soil, air Potentially affected people: 1,114,539 in Thane Dist.

The problem Tarapur Industrial Estate in Maharashtra has been identified as a problem area due to severe pollution from chemical industries. Despite the installation of a common effluent treatment plant and drainage to carry and dispose of effluents safely, hazardous waste is still being dumped illegally and there is poor maintenance of infrastructure causing pollution. It has been referred to

as one of Maharashtras worst industrial estates and the Supreme Court Monitoring Committee has estimated there to be approximately 40,000 tons of hazardous wastes dumped here. Health Impact No comprehensive health studies have been undertaken so far. Common health ailments include skin diseases and respiratory problems.

Mumbai as top polluted city

Mumbai is now the second largest coastal city in the world and India's premier port. The new Mumbai, located close to the largest chemical industry zone in Asia, is exposed to high levels of toxic and carcinogenic chemicals released by these industries. According to WHO, Mumbai is next to Kolkata and Delhi as one of the top ten most polluted cities in the world In India, the urban agglomerations are restricted to a selected few cities, which have attracted migration. Mumbai being the trade and commercial capital of India, has been the destination for all types of population groups such as literates, illiterates; skilled and unskilled; and persons from all walks of life. The population of Mumbai grew by 38 per cent during 1971-81 and, 20 per cent during 1981-91 to reach 10 million. Currently, the Mumbais population is standing at 18 million making it one of the most populous metropolises in the world. With this increase in population there has been an increase in number of vehicles and industrial activities aggravating of air pollution levels. With this growing peril of air pollution there is a serious threat to the health of its citizens (World Bank). A recent report on air pollution and its sources in mega cities by National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI) and sponsored by the Central Pollution Control Board reveals just how deep the pollution in Mumbai is. Construction activity, including paved and unpaved road dust is responsible for as much as 38% of the emission load of particulate matter (PM) in Mumbai. Power plants are the second biggest culprits accounting for 20.99% of air pollution, followed by landfill open burning at 10.84%. In the vehicular category, heavy duty diesel (HDDV) vehicles contribute to 3.42% of


Races with hurdles as obstacles were first popularised in the 19th century in England.[42] The first known event, held in 1830, was a variation of the 100yard dash which included heavy wooden barriers as obstacles. A competition between the Oxford and Cambridge Athletic Clubs in 1864 refined this; holding a 120-yard race (109.72 m) which had ten hurdles of 3-foot and 6 inches (1.06 m) in height (each placed 10 yards (9.14 m) apart), with the first and final hurdles 15 yards from the start and finish, respectively. French organisers adapted the race into metric (adding 28 cm) and the basics of this race, the men's 110 metres hurdles, has remained largely unchanged.[43] The origin of the 400 metres hurdles also lies in Oxford, where (around 1860) a competition was held over 440 yards and twelve 1.06 m high wooden barriers were placed along the course. The modern regulations stem from the 1900 Summer Olympics: the distance was fixed to 400 m while ten 3-foot (91.44 cm) hurdles were placed 35 m apart on the track, with the first and final hurdles being 45 m and 40 m away from the start and finish, respectively.[44] Women's hurdles are slightly lower at 84 cm for the 100 m event and 76 cm (2 ft 6in) for the 400 m event.[43][44]

By far the most common events are the 100 metres hurdles for women, 110 m hurdles for men and 400 m hurdles for both sexes. The men's 110 m has been featured at every modern Summer Olympics while the men's 400 m was introduced in the second edition of the Games.[43][44] Women's initially competed in the 80 metres hurdles event, which entered the Olympic programme in 1932. This was extended to the 100 m hurdles at the 1972 Olympics,[43] but it was not until 1984 that a women's 400 m hurdles event took place at the Olympics (having been introduced at the 1983 World Championships in Athletics the previous year).[44]

Men traversing the water jump in a steeplechase competition

Outside of the hurdles events, the steeplechase race is the other track and field event which includes obstacles. Just as the hurdling events, the steeplechase finds its origin in student competition in Oxford, England. However, this event was born as a human variation on the original steeplechase competition found in horse racing. A steeplechase event was

held on a track for the 1879 English championships and the 1900 Summer Olympics featured men's 2500 m and 4000 m steeplechase races. The event was held over various distances until the 1920 Summer Olympics marked the rise of the 3000 metres steeplechase as the standard event.[45] The IAAF set the standards of the event in 1954, and the event is held on a 400 m circuit which includes a water jump on each lap.[46] Despite the long history of men's steeplechase in track and field, the women's steeplechase only gained World Championship status in 2005, with its first Olympic appearance coming in 2008.
