This graduate-level course covers emissions, transport, transformation, and fate of atmospheric pollutants. Principles of air quality engineering are discussed in the context of global climate change, health and ecosystem effects, and air quality management.
This graduate-level course presents fundamental concepts and tools used in studies of the fate and transport of pollutants in the environment, including transport mechanisms, reactor theory, equilibrium partitioning, and mass transfer.
The objective of this course is to understand the major principles and problems associated with air pollution. We explore the effects, sources, and control of air pollutants. The course employs engineering fundamentals for the design of physical control devices as well as management approaches for air pollution control.
Overall view of environmental engineering with emphasis on hazardous waste management, water treatment, wastewater treatment, air pollution and its control, solid waste management, groundwater pollution and environmental regulations.
As part of the educational component of an NSF CAREER award, I have developed a database of multiple-choice questions for use with classroom response systems such as iClicker. Answers are not provided, and questions may have more than one correct answer. Please let me know if you find any typos or other errors or have other questions to add to the database.
