Environmental pollution is defined as the contamination of the physical and biological components of the earth/atmosphere to an extent that normal environmental processes are adversely affected. These effects can cause soil erosion, desertification, landslides, extinction of species, depletion of natural resources and waste accumulation.
Environmental pollution occurs in various forms, namely, air, water soil, radioactive, noise, heat/thermal and light.
