Syllabus
  • Atmospheric chemistry: - ozone chemistry: ozone formation dynamics, potential of hydrocarbons and trends, removal processes - oxides of N and S: acidity formation processes and trends (e.g. depositional), removal processes - aerosol composition, its transformations and trends (e.g. organic fraction and its implications, phase partitioning of semivolatiles), aerosol microphysical processes and their relevance for atmospheric sciences, aerosol effects: climate, health, process representations in modelling and application results (e.g. aerosol-climate effects, critical loads concept), removal processes Total environmental chemistry: - atmospheric and oceanic long-range transport, process representations in modelling and application results - final sink processes (chemical degradation, burial in the deep sea) - intercompartmental exchange processes: atmospheric deposition, volatilization from surfaces, multihopping and 'global distillation' hypothesis, process representations in modelling and application results
