ATM S 212: Air Pollution (5) NW
SLN 10583; M-F 12:30-1:20; JHN 111
This course is an introduction to air pollution on local, regional, and global scales.  We will focus on the sources, transformation, and dispersion of pollutants responsible for urban smog, acid rain, climate change and the stratospheric ozone hole.  We will examine the health and environmental effects of air pollutants, as well as current (or potential) technological solutions and international policy regulations.
Prerequisites: None. Open to all undergraduates.
