Atmospheric Chemistry, Aerosols & Clouds

This is an introductory course that presents the fundamental concepts of aerosol physics with applications to atmospheric aerosols. The student, upon completion of this class, should have a basic knowledge of how individual aerosol particles behave in gases when exposed to various forces, including, aerodynamic drag, gravitation, electrical and others, how particles interact with light, mathematical concepts associated with describing aerosol particle populations, and processes that alter particle populations, including particle interaction with gases and particle-particle interactions. This class does not cover particle chemistry. Cross-listed with CEE 6795.

Pre-requisite: EAS 6410 and (EAS 6790 or CEE 6790)
