Bye-law A rule made by a local authority to govern activities within the area it controls. Once inhaled, air toxics can be deposited in the lungs, taken into the blood, or both. Gerald Hawkins and Anthony Aveniexperts in archaeoastronomyconcluded in that the evidence was insufficient to support such an astronomical explanation. Non-hazardous solid waste: Waste, regardless of origin, that might normally be disposed of in a non-secure manner, such as at a sanitary landfill site, if not incinerated.

Examples include bye-laws covering waste disposal, traffic or public events or signs. Stationary Source Relatively large, fixed sources of emissions e. Arrhythmia: disturbance to the heartbeat affecting the frequency, regularity and force of heart contractions. Domestic waste Waste produced within the home, including garden waste. Carbon monoxide A highly poisonous, odourless, tasteless and colourless gas that is formed when carbon material burns without enough oxygen. Area sources: Small collective sources that are inventoried as a group, such as any small residential, governmental, institutional, commercial or industrial fuel combustion operations; on-site solid waste disposal facilities; and motor vehicles, aircraft, vessels or other transportation facilities; as well as other miscellaneous sources, which are too numerous to inventory as point sources.

Back to Top C Carbon count A measure of the amount of carbon dioxide you produce through your lifestyle every day, for example through driving or using electrical appliances and lighting. Also called preventative maintenance. Roadway dust and volatile organic compounds VOC s from refinery valves are examples of fugitive emissions. Heavy metals: A group of metals that have a relatively high atomic mass and are of particular concern for human health and the environment.

Agricultural Pollution

Although the ozone in the upper atmosphere protects us from harmful ultraviolet rays, ground-level ozone produces an unhealthy environment in which to live. California, with an economy larger than all but a handful of countries, has matched some of these accomplishments.

He classified them into three groups: the first appeared to be tracks connected to irrigation and field division, the second are lines that are axes connected with mounds and cairns, and the third was linked to astronomical interpretations.

Particulate matter less than or equal to 2. Biosphere The portion of Earth and its atmosphere that can support life Source: US EPA Black bin grey bin A wheelie bin used in certain local authorities to collect waste that cannot be recycled or composted. Sediment — Solid material that is in suspension, is being transported, or has been moved from its NSCA pollution glossary.

Many prehistoric indigenous cultures in the Americas and elsewhere constructed earthworks that combined such astronomical sighting with their religious cosmology, as did the late Mississippian culture at Cahokia and other sites in present-day United States.

Such trenches were made by removing the reddish-brown iron oxide -coated pebbles that cover the surface of the Nazca Desert. B Copper, lead, nickel or zinc. Nonattainment areas are areas designated by EPA as not meeting a standard for a pollutant.

The first systematic field study of the geoglyphs was made by Markus Reindel and Johny Cuadrado Island. Arrhythmia: disturbance to the heartbeat affecting the frequency, regularity and force of heart contractions. Instead, EPA evaluates this on a case-by-case basis. Carbon monoxide is toxic when inhaled because it combines with your blood and prevents oxygen from getting to your organs.

Composting The process of deliberately allowing food, garden and other suitable organic wastes to break down naturally over time to produce compost. To test this hypothesis, Woodmann made a hot-air balloon using materials and techniques he understood to have been available to the Nazca people.

Determining how they were made has been easier than determining why they were made.GLOSSARY OF TERMS This glossary includes a collection of some of the terms used in this manual and an explanation of each term.
