Types Of Pollution
In the post-industrial world that we reside in, pollution is one of the ill effects of the rapid progress made by mankind. Pollution is nothing but the contamination of the environment around us. Mainly caused due to human activities, it can also result due to natural disasters...
In the words of Odum, “Pollution is an undesirable change in physical, chemical or biological characteristics of air, water and soil that may or will adversely affect human life, industrial progress, living conditions and cultural assets.”
Types of Pollution:
1. Air Pollution
Air Pollution |[pic] | |
Air supplies us with oxygen which is essential for our bodies to live. Air is 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, and 1% water vapor and inert gases. Human activities can release substances into the air, some of which can cause problems for humas, plants, and animals.
One type of...

Agricultural pollution refers to biotic and abiotic byproducts of farming practices that result in contamination or degradation of the environment and surrounding ecosystems, and/or cause injury to humans and...
it is available for all to make use of, and its endless usage contributes to air pollution. However, it's complex and dynamic combination of gases is required for life. Currently, there are two unique types of air pollution primary and secondary. The primary side is sulfur dioxide. This gas is produced...

Earliest species in a habitat are called pioneer species. These begin the succession as the habitat changes. There remains add to the developing soil. This builds the soil for later species that require better conditions to grow.
-One of the key factors in populations succeeding relates to the biotic potential...

Pollution is the introduction of contaminants into the natural environment that cause adverse change. Pollution can take the form of chemical substances or energy, such as noise, heat or light. Pollutants, the components of pollution, can be either foreign substances/energies or naturally...
Definition of Soil Pollution
Pollution comes in many forms, and one form of pollution can often increase other forms, such as when rain washes solid waste off the surface of the ground and into water. Soil pollution is a rather insidious form of contamination because of both the range of pollutants...
Soil pollution is defined as the build-up in soils of persistent toxic compounds, chemicals, salts,
radioactive materials, or disease causing agents, which have adverse effects on plant growth and animal
Soil is the thin layer of organic and inorganic materials...
Water pollution involves any contaminated water, whether from chemical, particulate, or bacterial matter that degrades the water's quality and purity. Water pollution can occur in oceans, rivers, lakes, and underground reservoirs, and as different water sources flow together the pollution...
ON THE ECOSYSTEM
The activities include:
1. Bush Clearing;
Exposes the soil to erosion
Leaching of mineral salts
Prolonged exposure of soil surface may lead to desertification in areas of low rainfall
Increase in soil temperature which speeds up the rate of humus decay
May lead to global warming...

Pollutants, the components of pollution, can be either foreign substances/energies or naturally occurring contaminants...
Water pollution is the contamination of water bodies (e.g. lakes, rivers, oceans, aquifers and groundwater). Water pollution occurs when pollutants are directly or indirectly discharged into water bodies without adequate treatment to remove harmful compounds.
Water pollution affects plants and organisms...
Definition of Pollution
Pollution is an undesirable change in the physical, chemical or biological characteristics of air, water and soil that harmfully affects the living organisms. It can also be told as contamination of any part of the environment by human activities.
Soil is the thin layer of organic and inorganic materials that covers the Earth's rocky surface. The organic portion, which is derived from the decayed remains of plants and animals, is concentrated in the dark uppermost topsoil. The inorganic portion made up of rock fragments...
Pollution by Chemicals
A lot of modern farming involves the use of chemical fertilisers, insecticides and herbicides. The yields that farmers have been able to produce have grown enormously. However, these chemicals continue to work after they have been washed off the land into rivers and the water...
