PS 241 Fundamentals of Air Pollution (3 units)

Faced with the current problems of air pollution, this course aims to understand this phenomenon with a discussion of the principles of transport and dispersion of atmospheric pollutants. Models for point, line and area sources, and large eddy simulation models are also covered. This course also affords students practical experience using computer models.
