The branch which deals with the relationship between living organisms and environment is called environmental chemistry. Due to certain undesired activities our environment is getting spoiled and the time is not so far when earth will not be able to sustain life. Atmospheric pollution is generally studied as tropospheric and stratospheric pollution whereas the troposphere is the lowest region of the atmosphere extending from earth's surface to the lower boundary of the stratosphere. It contains vapours and is greatly affected by air pollution. Stratosphere is the layer of the earth's atmosphere above the troposphere and below the mesosphere is called stratosphere. Tropospheric pollution is basically due to various oxides of sulphur, nitrogen, carbon, halogen and also due to particulate pollutants. The phenomenon in which atmosphere of earth traps - the heat coming from the sun and prevents it from escaping into outer space is called greenhouse effect and greenhouse gases warm the earth leading to the warming of air due to greenhouse gases which is called global warming.
