Air Quality Impact Assessment (SUT, year 1)

Module description
Lectures
The principles of air pollution. Effect of airborne agents on human health .Characteristics of atmospheric and indoor aerosols,
including asbestos and other fibers, as well as, bioaerosols. The application of aerosol mechanics for the description of the
sampling process. Measurements of the concentration levels of the total suspended particles (TSP), PM10, and respirable
particles (PM2.5). Measurements of the concentration of fibers and biological particles. The passive and active methods of
determination of concentration levels of gaseous pollutants. Personal exposure measurements as the best method of finding the
total dose of the air pollutants. Dose-effect and dose-risk relationship as the tool for the prognosis of the adverse health effect
caused by the exposure to air pollutants. The principles of representative monitoring. The necessary components of the air
quality management.
