EENG 8290 - Air Quality Management

Environmental Engineering Part-time Studies Course

School of Construction and the Environment

Course Details

This course provides an overview of air pollution, focusing on atmospheric physics and chemistry, and air quality issues. It discusses the sources of air pollution and their regulation. The students are introduced to emission inventories, urban, regional and global air pollution, and meteorology. An introduction to dispersion modeling with demonstration of SCREEN and AERMOD regulatory modeling tools as methods of linking emissions to air quality are also presented. The Adaptive Management strategy is covered through theory and case studies.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of this course, students will be able to:

  • Discuss airborne contaminants, their sources and effects within the context of atmospheric chemistry, human health and assessment of environmental impacts.
  • Discuss Canadian, US and European air pollution regulations and initiatives, with a focus on emissions performance standards and air quality standards.
  • Illustrate meteorology concepts that can have an impact on air quality.
  • Relate air emissions to air quality dispersion modelling.
  • Analyse the issue of urban air pollution as it relates to chemical and photochemical reactions, the sources of pollution, emissions, and how the latter can be strategically managed to ensure air quality with a focus on the Fraser Valley region.
  • Analyse the issue of regional air pollution as it relates to the sources of pollution, emissions, atmospheric chemistry, trans-boundary transport and how the latter can be strategically managed to ensure air quality with a focus on the Georgia Basin - Pudget Sound region and Eastern Canada.
  • Discuss global air pollution issues in the context of greenhouse gases, the Kyoto Accord and its implications for Canada.
  • Prepare a briefing note on an air quality issues.
  • Propose an adaptive air quality management strategy duly based on research and data collection to address environmental, economic and social issues as they relate to an assigned airshed.

Effective as of Fall 2009
