Air Pollution and Air Sampling


Air pollution in the atmosphere is everywhere; air pollutants have different effects on the atmosphere, vegetation, animals, and materials and human being. This course covers the following topics: structure, composition, and physical characteristics of the atmosphere and its various layers; pollutant behavior in the atmosphere; global, regional, and community air pollutants; indoor air quality; human health effects of exposure to air pollutants; standards and regulations pertaining to air pollution; atmospheric dispersion modeling techniques; and control of particulate matter and gaseous air pollutants.
