  • Slide 5 - How is it measured?
  • Slide 6 - AQI: Air Quality Index Indicates whether pollutant levels in air may cause health concerns. Ranges from 0 (least concern) to 500 (greatest concern)
  • Slide 7 - ppt slide no 7 content not found
  • Slide 8 - The measured pollutants.....
  • Slide 9 - 5 Major Pollutants: 1..) Carbon Monoxide 2.) Sulfur Dioxide 3.) Nitrogen Dioxide 4.) Particulate Matter 5.) Ground Level Ozone
  • Slide 10 - Carbon Monoxide colorless, odorless produced when carbon does not burn in fossil fuels present in car exhaust deprives body of O2 causing headaches, fatigue, and impaired vision
  • Slide 11 - Sulfur Dioxide produced when coal and fuel oil are burned present in power plant exhaust narrows the airway, causing wheezing and shortness of breath, especially in those with asthma
  • Slide 12 - Nitrogen Dioxide reddish, brown gas produced when nitric oxide combines with oxygen in the atmosphere present in car exhaust and power plants affects lungs and causes wheezing; increases chance of respiratory infection
  • Slide 13 - Particulate Matter particles of different sizes and structures that are released into the atmosphere present in many sources including fossil fuels, dust, smoke, fog, etc. can build up in respiratory system aggravates heart and lung disease; increases risk of respiratory infection
  • Slide 14 - Ground Level Ozone at upper level, ozone shields Earth from sun’s harmful UV rays at ground level, ozone is harmful pollutants formed from car, power and chemical plant exhaust irritate respiratory system and asthma; reduces lung function by inflaming and damaging lining of lungs
  • Slide 15 - These 5 together form.....
  • Slide 16 - SMOG
  • Slide 17 - Combination of gases with water vapor and dust Combination of words smoke and fog Forms when heat and sunlight react gases (photochemical smog) Occurs often with heavy traffic, high temperatures, and calm winds
  • Slide 18 - Its effects.....
  • Slide 19 - 1st smog related deaths were in London in 1873; death toll 500 people; can you imagine how much worse the atmosphere is now?! Limits visibility Decreases UV radiation Yellow/black color over cities Causes respiratory problems and bronchial related deaths
  • Slide 20 - The other problems.....
  • Slide 21 - The Greenhouse Effect
  • Slide 22 - Global Warming
  • Slide 23 - Thinning of Upper OZone Layer
  • Slide 24 - Acid Rain
  • Slide 25 - Indoor Air Pollution
  • Slide 26 - So, What can YOU do?
  • Slide 27 - Ride your bike Tell your friends and family about pollution Make sure your parents get pollution checks on their cars Ride the school bus
  • Slide 28 - Learn more; stay up to date Join a group to stop pollution Encourage your parents to carpool to work Switch off lights, fan, heat, etc. when you leave the room
  • Slide 29 - We only have one world..... Do you want it like this?
  • Slide 30 - Credits Insel, Paul M. and Roth, Walton T. Core Concepts in Health: 9th edition.
