Air Pollution

Parent Category: Pollution
Air pollution is the presence of natural and artificial substances in the air that affect the health of humans and other organisms. A person continuously exposed to polluted air may eventually develop lung problems.
The left overs left behind in the soil as irrigated water forfarming evaporates, which makes the soil water have a higherosmotic content for the plants. A higher concentration of solutesmeans there is a lower amount of water. Therefore, more water willrun/diffuse out of the plants cells right into...
I can only speculate but I wouldn't imagine global warming wouldhave had much of an impact on global shark populations to date.Water takes a lot of energy to heat up and changes to globaloceanic temperatures are less noticable than atmospherictemperatures. Sharks are cold-blooded so changes in the...
Earth is described as having three atmospheres. The firstatmosphere, captured from the solar nebula, was composed of light(atmophile) elements from the solar nebula, mostly hydrogen andhelium. A combination of the solar wind and Earth's heat would havedriven off this atmosphere. The second...
It is 72% of our atmosphere. However it also can cause ground levelozone and smog. It also can be bad in water systems if there is anexcess. Without it though nothing could live. Plants need it tosurvive.
Methane 16% -- Carbon Dioxide (Forestry and Industrial process) 76%-- Nitrous Oxide 6% -- F-Gases 2%

You can say that the Earth is like a ball that will explode whensomething "bad" happens to it.
ANSWER: . Contact the manufacturer and inquire if they repair or replace the units with freon leaks. Also ask them if they can refer a repair shop near the town you live in. Quite simply, putting more freon in it will leak out and it will keep freezing up. Fix the leak.. >>>>. More times than not...
1. by not standing next to people who smoke . 2. not living in a high polluted area
The biproducts of fossil fuels are carbon monoxide, sulphites,nitrites, and solid residue which is non biodegradable.
The Kyoto Protocol is an international agreement while theCopenhagen Accord is a political agreement.
Yes, it is. Both the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers in Iraq have manypollutants added by industry and the populace. This includessewage, chemical releases, and agricultural runoff.
I'm quite sure the answer is Montreal Protocol:)
There are many ways to make a model of land pollution for a schoolscience exhibition. One idea is to show a diorama of land and lakearea clean next to a diorama of the same scene with sludge in thewater.
There are many natural resources that are extremely important tohuman activity, but without water human activity could not exist.Therefore, water is vital.
Ozone layer protects our planet Earth from the harmful radiationsthat comes from the sun. The ozone layer was discovered in 1913 bythe French physicists Charles Fabry and Henri Buisson. Ozone layeris a deep layer in earth's atmosphere that contain ozone which is anaturally occurring molecule ....

Burning oil produces carbon dioxide gas and also carbon monoxide gas. These go up into the ozone layer and form a large blanket of gas around the earth. The gas then traps in heat. The heat melts the ice-caps and this creates rising sea levels. 1 degrees more of temp will make the sea rise 7metres. ...
you can use a bicycle or take a walk to school so that you don't pollute the air.
Climate may influence the type of farming, as some crops require dry or wet weather to grow.
CFC's react in the ozone. They decompose ozone to become self stable.
because the acids in the rain, usually nitric acid or sulphuric acid, causes a chemical reaction with the calcium carbonate in the limestone. This leads to dissolution of the limestone and so the limestone buildings eventually crumble and fall down.

It will give us Cancer and Cancer kills. pollution makes us choke to death when we have an allergic reaction and our throat swells. Many illnesses like Asama, chronic respiratory disease and cancer can be so bad, or like Cancer, have no cure so that kills us.
Use the wind, a windmil. Use the water, a water turbine. And use the sun, solar cells (a solar panel)
At first, people burnt small quantities of coal or coke in their fireplaces for warmth. The consumption of fossil fuels is really by means such as burning coal or oil to generate electricity, or using oil products as automotive fuels. This releases carbon dioxide, additional to the natural carbon...
pollution affects people (or your loved or love ones) by putting chemicals into their bodies for example if u smoke beside ur loved or love ones then they are in hailing the same chemicals u are but for them its worse this is called second hand smoking.THIS PEICE OF TEXT WAS WRITTEN BY JOLIEN DOESN
It exists in the stratosphere and near the surface. Near the surface it is harmful, resulting from human pollutants for the most part. In the stratosphere is it useful, as it blocks much of the ultraviolet radiation.
Indeed they are acting alike. The glass in a green house allows light to enter but reduces the amount of heat that leaves. Green houses gasses in the atmosphere have the same effect on the planet in general.
(i) respiration (ii) photosynthesis (iii) burning (iv) movement of yatchs (v) generation of electricity
The advantages of the greenhouse effect includes the ability tokeep the Earth warm so food can be grown and people can live.Burning fossil fuels can create the greenhouse effect.
by making a fire , they make smoke which pollutes the air , that how culture practices contribute to air pollution
We can stop CFC's by using their alternatives. A ban has to be placed.
Dangers of the ozone hole Ozone protects us from the dangerous Ultraviolet radiation from the sun (UVB). This UVB causes skin cancers and cataracts in humans, and damage to some crops, including rice.
What types of granite does not react with acids?
Then all ultraviolet radiation would reach the surface. This would be very harmful to all forms of life, including humans. Humans and most other life would likely not be able to survive.
There is no specific sign. The ozone is denoted by O3.
Answer . Usually, it lowers it as CO2 is converted to HCO2 and SO4 is converted to H2SO4 (carbon dioxide to carbonic acid and sulfate to sulfuric acid). Nitric acids can also form from nitric oxide. That's the general composition of acid rain. (low pH = more acid)
It leaches calcium, potassium, and other valuable nutrients from the soil.
One major cause of human water pollution is waste water runoff intostreams and rivers. Another is run off from agriculturaloperations.
we can stop littering by not doing bad things to our environement
Ozone depletion has some associated problems. Ozone hole at both hemispheres,
Water is a natural resource. It is depleted via people of earth.

Eco-friendly products, also known as "green" products, are generally made with non-toxic, locally obtained, sustainable materials. Ideally, the product's entire lifecycle -- sourcing of materials, manufacturing, distribution, marketing, sales, use, disposal and recycle or reuse -- should have...
Yes, decaying vegetation underwater in a swamp will produce methane, also known as swamp gas.
Particle pollution is elevated in summer. It is due to the heat.
maybe from acid water
by releasing waste from their processes into the air, ground and waters.
Various items are equal in destroying ozone. CFC's and FREONS are example.
Most of the light's energy gets converted into heat.
no, but Ozone is
It has many franchise and packing plants that emit harmful chemicals. One of the most polluted cities is Mexico City, which has a dense fog of gases and chemicals that hovers above the city, similar to Los Angeles.
no. climate and seismic activity have no connection whatsoever
Well the fossil fuels are oils, and thus they burn. Go into the chem section and ask there. All i know is that they are carbon composite, which allows them to burn.
It paid farmers to plant crops that protected the soil.
The depletion of water resources is due to many causes. Over population is one.
all sorts of stuff toner in printers powdered graphite (which is an allotrope of carbon) is used as a dry lubricant filtering water (activated carbon but it's not pure) a bunch of other stuff that i can't think of right now but it's used for all kinds of stuff
Ozone depletion is the process where ozone holes are created in theozone layer. It is caused due to the action of chloro-floro-carbonson the ozone molecule to break it down to oxygen.
Common household activities contribute to ozone hole. Water vapor being released also causes this.
Yes it is causing. It causes the UV's of the sun and they cause cancer.

carbon monoxide, dirt, germ, pollutants
CO2 is not harmful to humans even in concentrations more than several times the present level in earth's atmosphere (which is about 385ppm, or about one part in 2,500). It is commonly far higher than 385ppm in offices etc with no harmful effects. CO2 is absolutely essential to the growth of all...
Partly. It is stated that sky lanterns are fully biodegradable. The rice paper biodegrades within "6 to 8 weeks" and flourished wire takes 9 months to break down. But this is just what manufacturers claim and it's not facts proved to society. Anyway, if it is true we should think about the harm...
Yes, burning anything releases carbon dioxide into the air, and makes it less breathable.
The amount of CFC's was not there in 1900. It began increasing. 2050 depends on how we continue using it.
It depends. A hydroelectric power installation at a pre-existing dam (it's called retrofitting) generally has a relatively small effect on the surroundings, and very little effect on the river or stream that supplies it with water. However, a hydropower project that includes a new dam and reservoir...
Silt is a major problem. Run-off (oil and fertilizer) from roads and farms is another. Unregulated or illegal waste from factories is another.
Cfc's are unique in that they are man made. Leaks in old air handling systems are the primary cause.
If there was no more rainforests people would build homes were it was
The greenhouse effect is where the atmosphere allows in heat, butnot out. As greenhouse gases increase, this causes global warming. A greenhouse gas is any three atom (or larger) gas. The greenhouse effect allows the planet to retain heat and supportlife. Without this ability we would all be dead. ...
This is a problem as we were unaware before of the CFC damage. They cause hole in ozone.
Yes the ozone layer is like the outer casing so it gets a lot ofsunlight. It shields us from UV light as a mirror.
Various chemicals harm or weaken the ozone. CFC's and Freons are some.
Their findings are based on the polar cap melt along with other glacier melt.
Answer . Seems unlikely, at least in any significant quantity
The consequences of water pollution are grave. Toxic water will notonly harm plant and animal live in rivers, streams, lakes andoceans, but this harm will continue up the food chain to humans.Drinking polluted water can cause illness which leads to death.Eating food raised on, or in, toxic water can...
There are three main types of gaseous air pollutants. The first issulfur dioxide, the second is oxides of nitrogen, and the third isthe pollution of ozone.
Yes, the ozone is present in the stratosphere. It is also presentin the troposphere.
