The origin, measurement and control of various types of air and water pollutants are studied in this course. The course reviews the fundamental gas laws and units used to measure air pollution. The origin of various types of air pollutants is outlined. Aspects of indoor air quality and noise will also be introduced.The methods and protocols used in the measurement of air and water quality sampling of emission sources are presented. Factors affecting the methods used to model indoor air and water pollutants are studied. Various air pollution control technologies are studied including absorption, adsorption, incineration, cyclones, filters, electrostatic precipitation and biofiltration. Air pollution problems on the macro scale (acid rain, ozone depletion, greenhouse effects) and the meso-scale (local industrial pollution) are introduced.
