Air Quality

Air, a vital element for all life forms, has been under threat due to anthropogenic activities. Air Quality is a measure of the condition or cleanliness of the air we breathe and its impact on our health and the environment.

Major pollutants like sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and particulate matter arise from industrial processes, vehicular emissions, and other sources. These pollutants can have severe health implications, leading to respiratory diseases, cardiovascular issues, and other ailments.

Monitoring air quality is essential to devise strategies for improvement. Cleaner technologies, green transportation solutions, and stricter regulations are some of the measures being adopted globally to combat air pollution.

While the quality of air has direct implications for health and the environment, it also impacts the diversity of life. For a comprehensive look at the significance of varied species, the Biodiversity Protection page is insightful. For habitat-centered perspectives, dive into Habitat Restoration.
