Title: Natural removal mechanisms for chemical pollutants in the environment

Abstract

A broad overview of the mechanisms for natural removal of pollutants in the environment is presented. Sink mechanisms in the atmosphere are described for removal of particles, both wet and dry. Removal of gases by physical and chemical means are discussed. Purification processes in water are described which involve physical, chemical, and biological processes. There is also a description of the sink mechanisms in soil. (RJC)
