Course summary

Emission of anthropogenic pollutants into the air since industrialisation has resulted in a change in the composition of the Earth's atmosphere. Air pollution has now become a major concern for human and environmental health, and for the Earth's overall climate. Our Atmospheric Science MRes will help you understand our atmosphere and its many complex processes that are responsible for sustaining life as we know it. You will learn about the chemistry and dynamics of the Earth’s atmosphere; how to observe, measure and model our air; what air quality actually means, and how we legislate for air pollutants. You’ll discover how to reduce air pollution effects and protect public and environmental health.
