The growing attention of the society to air quality and climate change along with the need for its mitigation and adaptation, requires knowledge of atmospheric characteristics, processes, observations, and data collection/ processing. This course discusses air quality in terms of atmospheric physics and chemistry. The students are introduced to atmospheric structure and processes, meteorology, emission sources and inventories, indoor and outdoor, urban, regional and global air quality issues, and regulation. An introduction to dispersion modeling with demonstration of SCREEN regulatory modeling tool as methods of linking emissions to air quality are also presented. The Adaptive Management strategy is covered through theory and case studies.
