National Ambient Air Quality Standards Related topics Environmental Science Natural environment Pollution is the introduction of contaminants into an environment, of whatever predetermined or agreed upon proportions or frame of reference ; these contaminants cause instability, disorder, harm or discomfort to the physical systems or living organisms therein. Pollution can take the form of chemical substances, or energy , such as noise, heat, or light energy. 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. Pollution is often classed as point source or nonpoint source pollution Sometimes the term pollution is extended to include any substance when it occurs at such unnaturally high concentration within a system that it endangers the stability of that system. For example, water is innocuous and essential for life, and yet at very high concentration, it could be considered a pollutant: if a person were to drink an excessive quantity of water, the physical system could be so overburdened that breakdown and even death could result. Another example is the potential of excessive noise to induce imbalance in a person's mental state, resulting in malfunction and

3. Air Pollution
Introduction to air pollution, health effects, prevention, types, and classroom activities.

Air Pollution
When people think about air pollution, they usually think about smog, acid rain, CFC's, and other forms of outdoor air pollution. But did you know that air pollution also can exist inside homes and other buildings? It can, and every year, the health of many people is affected by chemical substances present in the air within buildings. A great deal of research on pollution is being conducted at laboratories and universities. The goals of the research are to find solutions and to educate the public about the problem. Two places where this type of work is being done are LBNL and the University of California, Berkeley Let's take a closer look at the various types of air pollution , the effects that they have on people, and what is being (or not being) done to correct the problem.

4. Water Pollution
Concise introduction to different types of water pollution, including causes and effects. Includes numerous photos, graphs, and diagrams.
WATER POLLUTION AND SOCIETY By David Krantz and Brad Kifferstein INTRODUCTION Comprising over 70% of the Earth’s surface, water is undoubtedly the most precious natural resource that exists on our planet. Without the seemingly invaluable compound comprised of hydrogen and oxygen, life on Earth would be non-existent: it is essential for everything on our planet to grow and prosper. Although we as humans recognize this fact, we disregard it by polluting our rivers, lakes, and oceans. Subsequently, we are slowly but surely harming our planet to the point where organisms
are dying at a very alarming rate. In addition to innocent organisms dying off, our drinking water has become greatly affected as is our ability to use water for recreational purposes. In order to combat water pollution, we must understand the problems and become part of the solution. POINT AND NONPOINT SOURCES According to the American College Dictionary, pollution is defined as: “to make foul or unclean; dirty.” Water pollution occurs when a body of water is adversely affected due to the addition of large amounts of materials to the water. When it is unfit for its intended use, water is considered polluted. Two types of water pollutants exist; point source and nonpoint source. Point sources of pollution occur when harmful substances are emitted directly into a body of water. The Exxon Valdez oil spill best illustrates a point source water pollution. A nonpoint source delivers pollutants indirectly through environmental changes. An example of this type of water pollution is when fertilizer from a field is carried into a stream by rain, in the form of run-off

    pollution: an overview
    Pollution is the contamination of air, water, or earth by harmful substances. Concern for pollution developed alongside concerns for the environment in general. See Environmental law . The advent of automobiles, increased chemical wastes, nuclear wastes, and accumulation of garbage in landfills created a need for legislation specifically aimed at decreasing pollution. Among the landmark acts designed to preserve our environment is the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act ( 42 U.S.C ‚§‚§ 6901 et seq ); a comprehensive regulatory statute aimed at controlling solid waste disposal. The Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982 ( 42 U.S.C. ‚§‚§ 10101 et seq ) aims to safely dispose of nuclear wastes. The Clear Air Act was first enacted in 1970, it was later amended in 1977 and again in 1990; with its present form embodied in 42 U.S.C. ‚§‚§ 7401

    Pollution prevention (P2) is reducing or eliminating waste at the source by modifying production processes, promoting the use of non-toxic or less-toxic substances, implementing conservation techniques, and re-using materials rather than putting them into the waste stream. Since Pollution Prevention is a key policy in national environmental protection activities, a number of Partnership Programs and other EPA initiatives utilize this approach in their work.

    Environmental Pollution is an international journal that focuses on papers that report results from original research on the distribution and ecological effects of pollutants in air, water and soil environments and new techniques for their study and measurement. Findings from re-examination and interpretation of existing data are also included.
    The editors are focusing on papers that provide new insights into environmental processes and or the effects of pollutants.
    The editors discourage papers which describe results from routine surveys or routine monitoring programs, which are more local in interest than regional or global. Descriptions of a particular chemical in yet another situation are discouraged.

    When it comes to mixing oil and water, oceans suffer from far more than an occasional devastating spill. Only about 5 percent of oil pollution in the oceans is due to major tanker accidents.
    TOXIC MATERIALS Metals and slowly degrading chemicals threaten inland and coastal waters
    Industrial, agricultural, household cleaning, gardening, and automotive products regularly end up in coastal waters.
    DANGEROUS DEBRIS Trash can kill
    When odds and ends of life on land particularly plasticsend up in the sea, they can harm marine life when they are mistaken as food or entangle animals.
    Coastal mining booms could lead to ecological problems
    Not only are the oceans used as dumping grounds, but they have recently become the source for materials that by their removal, could have serious consequences

    Information Pollution
    Excessive word count and worthless details are making it harder for people to extract useful information. The more you say, the more people tune out your message. Saying less often communicates more. Our lives are littered with extraneous details that smother salient information, as these examples from my recent travels show.
    • In the lobby of the Sheraton hotel near Kennedy Airport, an electronic sign hangs above a monitor. The sign has two lines of 20 characters each, and cycles through the following four messages:
    • For Your Information
      and Convenience
    • The Monitor
      Underneath Will
    • Indicate the Flight
      Schedules of All
    • Airlines at JFK
      Airport Because the monitor's meaning is obvious to anyone who has ever been on an airplane, the sign adds nothing. Worse, it wastes people's time as they ponder the cycling text, assuming that it will eventually say something important. If the goal is to attract attention to the monitor, the sign could simply say: Schedules for All
      JFK Flights
    • At San Jose Airport, when you board the shuttle bus from the terminal to the parking lot you hear the message:
