Introduction

The Air Quality Management Resource Centre (AQMRC) in the Department of Geography and Environmental Management is pleased to offer a new suite of Air Quality short courses. This new suite consists of five one day courses covering the following topics:

Individuals are invited to book on as many or few of the days as they wish. The courses are accredited by the Institution of Environmental Sciences (IES) and the Institute of Air Quality Management (IAQM) and CPD certificates are available on completion.

If you wish to book onto all 5 days please see 'How to Apply', below, for the 5 Day Booking Form.

What does it cover?

This course provides an understanding of the theory and practice of using dispersion models to replicate the behaviour of pollution in the atmosphere. The course will explain the rationale behind air quality modelling using examples of particular models to describe the ways in which they are used and highlight some of the potential limitations and problems associated with them.

The course also provides a basic introduction to model input data, the basic principles and assumptions involved and the concepts of model validation, verification and adjustment, including worked examples of a modelling scenario in ADMS-Roads and the verification and adjustment process.

This course would be of value to anyone interested or involved in the use of local-scale atmospheric dispersion modelling.

Who is it for?

The courses will be of interest to practitioners and policy makers involved in air quality management in:

  • Environmental health/protection
  • Public health
  • Transport
  • Land-use planning

Accreditations and partnerships:
