CIVE 3435: Environmental Pollution Fate and Transport
Lecture - 4 credits
- Provides a systematic approach to analyzing the fate and transport of pollutants within natural systems.
- Equilibrium modeling and reactive transport modeling are used to assess the predominant processes that control the movement and persistence of pollutants in water, soil, and air.
- Topics include mass transfer across multiple phases; physical, chemical, and biological transformations of substances; transport processes (diffusion, dispersion, advection, interphase mass transport); eutrophication of lakes; conventional pollutants in rivers and estuaries; groundwater contamination; and atmospheric deposition.
