The urban heat island effect, redevelopment of brownfield sites and urban agriculture are discussed in depth, before part three goes on to explore urban air pollution and emissions control. Urban water resources, reuse and management are explored in part four, followed by a study of urban energy supply and management in part five.

Air pollution occurs when harmful or excessive quantities of substances are introduced into Earth's s of air pollution include gases (such as ammonia, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrous oxides, methane and chlorofluorocarbons), particulates (both organic and inorganic), and biological may cause diseases, allergies and even death to.

This question is addressed in this study. Air pollution represents a health risk for people living in urban environment. Urban air consists in a complex mixture of chemicals and carcinogens and its effects on health can be summarized in acute respiratory effects, neoplastic nonneoplastic (e.g.

chronic bronchitis) chronic respiratory effects, and effects on other organs and systems. Air Pollution History of air pollution: The origin of air pol-lution on the earth can be traced from the times when man started using firewood as a means of cooking and heating.

Hippocrates has men-tioned air pollution in BC. With the discov-ery and increasing use of coal, air pollution became more pronounced especially in urban areas. In the last decade air pollution represents one of the major environmental issues and is becoming a very important factor of the quality of life in urban areas, posing a risk both to human health and to the environment.

ADVERTISEMENTS: Here is your essay on environmental pollution in Urban Areas. An environment is made-up of the circumstances, objects or conditions by which a human, animal, plant or object is surrounded. The term environment’ generally refers to the natural world as perceived by humans. ADVERTISEMENTS: ‘Pollution’ refers to harmful environmental.

Results also showed that the concentration of PM in the summer and winter (a daily average of 60 to 80 µg/m 3) was higher than the national air quality standard in the United States (65 µg/m 3).

In order to achieve this, a study will be launched in to prepare and develop a multi-year action noise. The followings are the main environmental problems in urban areas: 1. The rapid inflow of rural people to urban places gives rise to housing problem and will increase the slum settlements.

Slums are not only over crowded but also create an environment of insanitation that breeds social, health and economic problems. Experience in both industrial and developing countries demonstrates that an effective approach for confronting urban environmental issues is to formulate a city-specific environmental management strategy and action plan.
