Dispersion of wastes in air, water, and soil, point and non-point sources pollution, heavy metals and organic compounds in the environment, atmospheric pollutants and trace gases, solid and hazardous waste management soil biodegradation and bioremediation of contaminated sites environmental impact assessment,. Various branches of studies like chemistry, physics, medical science, life science, agriculture, public health, sanitary engineering etc it is the science of physical phenomena in the environment it studies of the sources, reactions, transport, effect and fate of physical a biological species in the air, water and soil and the effect. Successfully used to address a wide range of issues including waste disposal, water pollution and air emissions the scope of an environmental tax should ideally be as broad as the scope of the environmental problems, like soil contamination, the impacts are generally limited to a relatively small area.
It involves waste water management, air pollution control, recycling, waste disposal, radiation protection, industrial hygiene, animal agriculture, environmental sustainability, public health and environmental engineering law it also includes studies on the environmental impact of proposed construction projects. New zealand's environmental reporting series: 2014 air domain report presents information on new zealand's air quality it shows the changes in our air quality over time, and the associated pressures and impacts it helps us identify and understand air quality issues at the national level this report includes data to 2012.
