IEP 281: Water and Air Pollution Chemistry examines the applied chemistry of water and air pollution. Major topics include: physical and chemical characteristics of water and air, water and air pollution, quantifying water and air pollution, water and air sampling, water treatment, wastewater treatment, mass balance modelling and air pollution dispersion. Applied concepts cover chronic and acute toxicity testing, use of colorimetry and AAS to identify and quantify pollutants, variable speed pumps used with pollution trapping devices for air sampling, gas detection tubes and air sampling meters. Use of spreadsheets for data analysis is an essential component of this course.
