The course includes four modules (lectures + computer lab):
I. Atmospheric composition: gaseous trace pollutants and aerosol.
II. Tropospheric aerosol: micro-physical properties (size distributions), and dynamics of formation and growth (nucleation, coagulation, condensation). Trace gaseous compounds: dynamics (formation, transport, diffusion, and removal) in the troposphere.
III. Interaction of gaseous compounds and aerosol with radiation: the nature of light absorbing and scattering materialin the troposphere.
IV.Interactions between air pollution, human health and climate. Experimental data analysis (MATLAB® will be used).
