CIV ENGR 701: The Chemistry of Air Pollution

  • Catalog Description:
    The course will cover background and modern research methods for the application of chemical analysis tools to understanding of the origin, composition, and the chemical transformations of pollutants that occur in the atmosphere. Emphasis will be directed at the pollutants impacting human health, climate change, and ecosystem degradation. Approximately half of the course materials will be taken from the scientific literature and will provide the opportunity to advance skills in the critical reading of journal articles. The course is directed at graduate students conducting research and interested in air pollution and environmental chemistry. As part of the course, students will gain experience in presenting scientific research methods and results related to course materials.

    Moodle and D2L are being retired. Already, many Engineering courses are in Canvas rather than Moodle. Rather than using the Moodle links below, it is recommended that you use the Learn@UW site (learnuw.wisc.edu) to gain access to all of the LSM choices available to campus.
