Air Pollution: The Insults to our Atmospheric Environment

Air pollution represents a chemical imbalance in the atmosphere; usually, but not always, a result of human activity. While once we viewed this problem in terms of toxic gases, we now realise that small particles are often the key. In this lecture we will look at some simple gas chemistry, including nature’s garbage collector, and acid rain. Then we will turn our attention to the more complex issues surrounding atmospheric aerosol particles (including some Australian research).


This class will be delivered face-to-face at WEA Sydney. Enrolling students need to ensure they have read the current COVID-19 Safety Guidance that WEA Sydney has put in place before enrolling.
