This course is a foundation for the quantitative understanding of air pollution: At any point in the environment (receptor), how much pollution is caused by a known source? If there are many sources, how much pollution does each source contribute at a receptor? Also offered for graduate-level credit as Ph 577 and may be taken only once for credit.
