Natural source of air pollution are volcanic eruptions and forest fires. Volcanic eruptions happen because of the pressure and density. When there is lower density of magma relative to the surroundings rocks, the magma will rise. As it rise, the bubble are form from the gas dissolved in the magma. The gas bubbles formed gives high pressure and indirectly bring the magma to the surface and forces it in the air. The volcanic eruptions released many gases such as sulfur dioxide, carbon dioxide, smoke, ash and other air pollutants.

Forest fires happen naturally when there is dry lightning without any present of rain or with little present of rain followed with stormy weather disturbance. Lighting randomly strikes the earth. With the present of oxygen, heat and
