Introduction to Meteorology for Air Quality: October, 2018 – Online

An understanding of meteorology is essential for air quality practitioners. This course will outline key meteorological concepts and apply them to air quality applications. You will use information from this course to inform decisions for siting of air quality monitoring stations, choosing representative data for air quality modelling, preparation of model input files and undertaking meteorological modelling. As an air quality expert you need to know the impact of terrain, inversions, boundary layer height, proximity to water etc. on the dispersion and transport of pollutants. This course covers these topics and more in four 2-hour online webinars throughout October. This course will include discussion topics, optional homework exercises and case studies. Early bird registration available to 3 August 2018.
