Class Description

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 policy regulations.

The course is intended for non-science, liberal arts majors and fulfills 5 credits of the Natural World (NW) distribution requirement.  The course is also designated as a "W" course.
