Outline and Purpose of the Course The history of global environmental issues are lectured with a special focus on climate change,地球環境問ozone depletion and acid rain. Moreover, the energy consumption and its environmental relationship would be discussed. The governmental and international organization roles are also presented. Finally the air pollution, its mechanism, health impact and abatement technologies are lectured.
Course Goals To understand the systematic knowledge about global environment and air pollution problem
Schedule and Contents Global environmental change,1time,Structural change in society and environmental problem changes are discussed. History of global environment and current situation are explained. The sustainable development and environmental efficiency, environmental capacities follow.
Climate change,4times,Why climate change happens, greenhouse gas emissions, their reaction in the environment, climate change perspective and impacts are explained. Finally, climate change mitigations are presented.
Ozone layer protection and acd rain,1time,Ozone depletion history, the source substance, ozone layer distribution, ultraviolet effect on health, international ozone layer protection, Montreal protocol effectiveness and Japanese countermeasures are explained. Acid rain mechanism, its ecosystem effect, and the mitigation measures for acid rains are presented.
Energy and environment,2times,Environmental load associated with energy consumption, indoor pollution, urban air pollutions caused by energy consumption and intervention to the material cycle induced by energy consumptions are lectured.
Global environmental protection,1time,International activities for global environmental issues, and Japanese policy as well as private sector’s role are explained.
Air pollution,1time,Global and Japanese air pollution history is introduced. Then, industrial development and its relationship with air pollutions are discussed.
Air pollutants and health impact,1time,Individual air pollution species and its chemical characteristics, as well as health impacts are lectured.
Air pollution law and abatement technology,1time,Environmental standard and emissions regulations for air pollutions are explained. Also, abatement technologies are presented
Air pollution mechanism,1time,Diffusion of pollution, reaction, and deposition are discussed with from the physical chemistry phenomena. Stability of air and air quality model is also explained
Air pollution simulation,1time,Emissions source data, meteorological data, and air chemical transport model simulations are lectured.
Confirmation of understanding,1time,Confirm the understanding
Evaluation Methods and Policy There to be writing test every class and final exam are evaluated as well.
