Air Pollution Science and Technology

Students in this option develop an understanding of the sources, behavior, atmospheric transport, transformation, exposure and effects of air pollutants. They learn to apply this understanding to source control and to the development of effective air quality management plans.

Coordinator: Barbara Turpin
