- At the end of the course students should be able to:
- characterize properties of environmental compartments (atmosphere,technosphere, hydrosphere, pedosphere, biosphere) and combine this knowledge with the presence and fate of chemical compounds in these compartments
- understand problems related to their pollution from natural and anthropogenic sources
- explain the relationships between the pollution sources and primary and secondary types of pollution of environmental compartments
- characterize and discuss environmental and health impacts of pollution
- Atmosphere – basic characteristics – contents, stratification of temperature, atmospheric pressure, balance of energy, temperature, temperature gradients.
- Atmospheric aerosols – origin, formation, properties, contents, effects. Mechanisms of atmospheric sinks.
- Air pollution, atmospheric reactions, examples, reactions with OH radicals.
- Sulphur in the atmosphere, forms of occurrence, biogenic and anthropogenic compounds, sulfur dioxide.
- Nitrogen in the atmosphere, forms of occurrence, mechanisms of NOx formation.
- Carbon, in the atmosphere, forms of occurrence, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, greenhouse effects, hydrocarbons.
- Ozone in the atmosphere, formation and destruction, ozone formation in lower troposphere, ozone layer, ozone depletion, effects of UV radiation.
