This course focuses on managing and monitoring the quality of the air we breathe. Air pollution control equipment and pollution abatement techniques for the control of point source gas/vapour and particulate emissions – including the effectiveness and operational limitations – are therefore examined in this course. Air dispersion modelling, point source, fugitive emissions, and ambient air monitoring methods are also a point of focus. Because many of the methods used to monitor ambient air quality are similar to those used to assess indoor air quality, a portion of the course is devoted to techniques used to monitor indoor (e.g. workplace/residential) air quality as well. Laboratory exercises introduce point source manual monitoring, fugitive emissions monitoring, air emission assessments, operation and calibration of continuous analyzers and indoor air sampling techniques.
