A survey course covering the chemistry, transport, and fate of air pollutants related to current issues of air quality, such as photochemical smog, ozone depletion, particulate matter, and indoor air quality. Topics include the types, sources, health and environmental effects, measurement, evaluation, control, regulation, and modeling of air pollution concentrations.
  • SPEA-E 464 Organic Pollutants: Environmental Chemistry and Fate (3 cr.) P: SPEA-E 536 or permission of the instructor. This course provides students with both a quantitative and intuitive understanding of the relationship between chemical structure, environmental properties, and the behavior of organic contaminants in the environment, particularly aquatic environments. Physical/ chemical properties of organic chemicals, fate determining processes, and modeling concepts will be examined in detail.
