LEARNING

OUTCOMES

ANDCOMPETENCES:

 

  1. Knowledge based
  • Understanding the Dynamics of the Atmosphere.
  • Understanding the use of regulatory laws
  • Understanding the effect of atmospheric chemistry on humans and the environment in general

 

 

2. Skills / Competences acquired

  • Students will be able to recognize, evaluate and recommend instrumentation for specific atmospheric monitoring.
  • Students will be able to implement regulatory measures for atmospheric pollution that results from atmospheric chemical reactions that generate secondary pollutants.
  • Students will be able to effect a complete environmental survey and synthesize a complete picture of the environmental problem that results from atmospheric chemical reactions (e.g. Montreal convention)
  • Students will be able to examine data and recommend mitigation strategies for atmospheric pollutants that results from atmospheric chemical reactions,in their future employment.
