History - Interdisciplinary

The goal of this course is to underline the fact that air pollution (emissions) from any source is related to the emissions into other environmental media from the same point source. An introductory chapter provides the historical background on air pollution.

Adverse Effects

The human nose and brain are capable of distinguishing roughly 1 trillion scents. Many chemical substances, at concentrations sufficiently large, can be detected by the human nose. Odors are not necessarily related to toxicity; for example, carbon monoxide (CO) is colorless and odorless but can be deadly at concentrations above 150 to 200 ppm.
