W19-64 UNDERSTANDING THE IMPACTS OF ATMOSPHERIC POLLUTION
Wednesdays: 1-2:20 p.m.
4 Sessions: Feb. 13-Mar. 6
TEMPLE BETH SHOLOM
Robert Yamartino

Scientists have estimated pollution impacts for over 100 years: beginning with the Industrial Age building of smokestacks and use of chlorine gas in World War I. This course will emphasize methods for assessing such impacts, ranging from simple estimates to sophisticated 4-D global simulations. Basic mechanisms of atmospheric pollution transport will be reviewed employing basic “book-keeping” arithmetic and diagrams. We’ll also discuss chemistry issues that are essential when modeling ozone or aerosols. Modeling climate change invokes these mechanisms plus others, including tipping-point phenomena, in global simulations that might span 100,000-plus years.
Silver Member: $70; Gold Member: $63.
