Air pollution - Why care? (Turkey)
Published: 26 Nov 2010 Modified: 21 Mar 2015

Air pollution could cause both health impacts to human and damage to vegetation and ecosystems due to exposure with harmful pollutants. The main sources of air pollution are SOX, NOX and PM10 generated by many anthropogenic effects. In Turkey most of the air pollution is caused by household heating and traffic, as well as that in industrial sites emissions aroused from many industrial activities have an additional proportion in this schema.
