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 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, dilution and transport of pollutants. This course covers these topics and more in four 2-hour webinars in November 2021.
Standard registration available to 3 November 2021.
This online course introduces the key aspects of air quality management, including the science behind the behaviour and effects of air pollution. The course covers air quality principles and describes how pollutants are assessed through modelling, monitoring and emission inventories. Participants will receive the course workbook and an electronic copy of the CASANZ Publication Air Quality Regulations and Odour Management in Australia and New Zealand. The course is limited to 15 participants and will be conducted using Zoom, enabling participant video streaming and enhanced interaction between course instructors and attendees.
