Topic #5. Water pollution. Water pollution is the contamination of water bodies (
e.g. lakes, rivers, oceans, aquifers and groundwater). This form of environmental
degradation occurs when pollutants are directly or indirectly discharged into
Our oceans account for more than 96 percent of the world's water, and few of the
world's coastlines are beyond the influence of human pressures. The
interdisciplinary Marine and Coastal Science major highlights the terrestrial-
marine interface, coastal issues and human impacts on the marine environment.
Moreover, this process is further accentuated when combined with other non-
climate factors such as soil compaction or loss of sediment supply by rivers… ...
