Environmental Engineering Fundamentals I: Atmospheric and Surface Processes

Elie R. Bou-Zeid
Mark A. Zondlo

This course, offered as the first of a two-part series, provides a fundamental basis for understanding atmospheric and surface processes in environmental engineering. Topics to be addressed include the structure, dynamics, and thermodynamics of the atmosphere; clouds and precipitation; atmospheric and aqueous chemistry; and biogeochemistry of surface waters. These topics are discussed and analyzed through the use of governing equations and concepts of environmental engineering.
