The Environmental Science is a multi-disciplinary subject because it comprises various branches of science like chemistry, physics, medical science, life science, agriculture, public health, sanitary engineering, etc. It is the science of physical phenomena in the environment. It studies of the sources, reactions, transport, effect and fate of chemical and biological species in the air, water, and soil, and their effect on human activities.
We need to study the environment and the sciences applied into it to find solutions to different environmental issues so that children of tomorrow will still enjoy the healthy and a productive environment we still have now. Environmental science provides the educational specialties related to a number of subjects and issues related to environment i.e.
Ozone layer Depletion,
Climate change etc.
