Air Quality Outdoors and Indoors

  • 15 credits

Cities are key players in abating health risks of air pollution as well as influencing emissions of pollutants that affect the global climate. Many cities have ambitious goals to become fossil fuel free within the next decades and this can also have important positive and negative consequences on health risks.

You will learn about the whole chain of processes going from emissions, atmospheric physical and chemical transformations, turbulent mixing to health risks, air quality management, legislation and societal costs associated with air pollution in cities.

The main aim is that you should understand the main sources of air pollutants, how they are regulated and how they affect the exposure and health risks of the urban population.

Indoor and workplace air is important in a health perspective, especially since we spend about ninety percent of our time indoors. Many indoor pollutants can affect health even at low concentrations. At workplaces, pollutant concentrations can be high, and it is important with ventilation and regulations for good air quality.
You will learn about indoor and workplace air pollutant sources, regulations, ventilation and health effects.

The main aim is to learn the indoor and workplace air pollutant sources and how they affect health and how the air quality can be improved.
