The course contains theme environment


Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Course specific prerequisites

Basic mathematics and statistics

Aim

To give experience and insights into the techniques to quantify the ambient environment. The course is directed toward physical and chemical methods to measure gases and particles in the atmosphere, trace elements in samples, remote sensing and radioactivity. One section of the course is devoted to design of a measurement programme and to data analysis by different statistical methods

Content

Planning and accomplishing of an environmental measurement, either in field or laboratory. Methods to study the environment on a global scale by remote sensing from satellites. Water vapor, ozone and greenhouse gases will be discussed.
Measurement techniques to characterize and identify aerosol particles and to measure major air pollution gases like sulphur dioxides, nitrogen oxides and hydrocarbons. Trace element analysis by x-ray metods.
Dispersion and measurements of radioactive elements in the environment.

Literature

Compendium supplied by the Physics department.

Examination

Oral examination and assignments during the course. Mandatory laboratory works.
