Water Pollution
WATER POLLUTION is the contamination of water bodies (e.g. lakes , rivers , oceans , aquifers and groundwater ). This form of environmental degradation occurs when pollutants are directly or indirectly discharged into water bodies without adequate treatment to remove harmful compounds. Water
Water
pollution affects the entire biosphere – plants and organisms living in these bodies of water . In almost all cases the effect is damaging not only to individual species and population, but also to the natural biological communities

Soil Salinity
SOIL SALINITY is the salt content in the soil ; the process of increasing the salt content is known as SALINIZATION. Salts occur naturally within soils and water. Salination can be caused by natural processes such as mineral weathering or by the gradual withdrawal of an ocean. It can also come about through artificial processes such as irrigation .

The ions responsible for salination are: Na+, K+, Ca2+, Mg2+ and Cl−. As the Na+ (sodium) predominates, soils can become SODIC. Sodic soils present particular challenges because they tend to have very poor structure which limits or prevents water infiltration and drainage

Uranium
URANIUM is a chemical element with symbol U and atomic number 92. It is a silvery-white metal in the actinide series of the periodic table . A uranium atom has 92 protons and 92 electrons , of which 6 are valence electrons . Uranium
Uranium
is weakly radioactive because all its isotopes are unstable, with half-lives varying between 159,200 years and 4.5 billion years. The most common isotopes in natural uranium are uranium-238 (which has 146 neutrons and accounts for over 99%) and uranium-235 (which has 143 neutrons). Uranium
Uranium
has the highest atomic weight of the primordially occurring elements. Its density is about 70% higher than that of lead , and slightly lower than that of gold or tungsten . It occurs naturally in low concentrations of a few parts per million in soil, rock and water, and is commercially extracted from uranium-bearing minerals such as uraninite

Mercury (element)
MERCURY is a chemical element with symbol HG and atomic number 80. It is commonly known as QUICKSILVER and was formerly named HYDRARGYRUM (/haɪˈdrɑːrdʒərəm/ ). A heavy , silvery d-block element, mercury is the only metallic element that is liquid at standard conditions for temperature and pressure ; the only other element that is liquid under these conditions is bromine , though metals such as caesium , gallium , and rubidium melt just above room temperature . Mercury occurs in deposits throughout the world mostly as cinnabar (mercuric sulfide ). The red pigment vermilion is obtained by grinding natural cinnabar or synthetic mercuric sulfide

Antimony
ANTIMONY is a chemical element with symbol SB (from Latin : stibium) and atomic number 51. A lustrous gray metalloid , it is found in nature mainly as the sulfide mineral stibnite (Sb2S3). Antimony compounds have been known since ancient times and were powdered for use as medicine and cosmetics, often known by the Arabic name, kohl . Metallic antimony was also known, but it was erroneously identified as lead upon its discovery. In the West, it was first isolated by Vannoccio Biringuccio and described in 1540. For some time, China
China
has been the largest producer of antimony and its compounds, with most production coming from the Xikuangshan Mine in Hunan
Hunan
. The industrial methods for refining antimony are roasting and reduction with carbon or direct reduction of stibnite with iron. The largest applications for metallic antimony is an alloy with lead and tin and the lead antimony plates in lead–acid batteries

Air Pollution
AIR POLLUTION occurs when harmful substances including particulates and biological molecules are introduced into Earth\'s atmosphere . It may cause diseases, allergies or death of humans; it may also cause harm to other living organisms such as animals and food crops, and may damage the natural or built environment . Human activity and natural processes can both generate air pollution. Indoor air pollution and poor urban air quality are listed as two of the world's worst toxic pollution problems in the 2008 Blacksmith Institute World's Worst Polluted Places report. According to the 2014 World Health Organisation
World Health Organisation
report, air pollution in 2012 caused the deaths of around 7 million people worldwide, an estimate roughly matched by the International Energy Agency

National Park
A NATIONAL PARK is a park in use for conservation purposes. Often it is a reserve of natural, semi-natural, or developed land that a sovereign state declares or owns. Although individual nations designate their own national parks differently, there is a common idea: the conservation of 'wild nature' for posterity and as a symbol of national pride. An international organization, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), and its World Commission on Protected Areas , has defined "National Park" as its Category
Category
II type of protected areas . While this type of national park had been proposed previously, the United States established the first "public park or pleasuring-ground for the benefit and enjoyment of the people", Yellowstone National Park

, in 1872
