Prerequisite
Knowledge of subjects Environmental studies
Rationale
To learn the principles and theories behind atmospheric phenomena and air pollution due to emission of gaseous wastes.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
1. Assess the impacts of air pollution on human health, vegetation and materials.
2. Plan strategies to control, reduce and monitor pollution.
3. Relate the various atmospheric stability condition with different plume behavior.
4. Measure the concentration of different air pollutants in stack gases and in the ambient air.
5. Calculate the atmospheric dispersion of discharge from both point and area side sources.
6. Relate historic air pollution events, air quality legislation and relevant international protocols.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
