The study of the sources, reactions, transport, effects, and fates of chemical species in the air, soil, and water environments and the effect of human activity and biological activity on these is called Environmental chemistry. It is the scientific study of the chemical and biochemical phenomena that occur in natural places. It should not be confused with green chemistry, which seeks to reduce potential pollution at its source. Environmental chemistry is an interdisciplinary science that includes atmospheric, aquatic and soil chemistry, as well as heavily relying on analytical chemistry and being connected to environmental and different areas of science.
Environmental chemistry is the study of chemical processes occurring in the environment which are impacted by humankind activities. These effects might be felt on a local scale, through the presence of urban cities, air contaminations or harmful substances emerging from a chemical waste site, or on a worldwide scale, through depletion of stratospheric ozone or global warming.
