Air Pollution

  • PDF

“Air pollution is the presence of contaminants in the atmosphere in quantities and duration that are injurious to human health and the environment. Air pollutants come from many sources and occur in many forms, but they can be categorized into two broad classes: particulates (including ashes, smoke, and dust) and gases and vapors (including fumes, mists, and odors).”
