Focuses on the physical, chemical, and hydrodynamic processes governing pollutant fate in natural systems. Topics include mass and energy balances, mixing processes, partitioning processes (exchange with solids and air), and particle removal. Examples from natural systems address lake, river, and atmospheric pollution. Environmental Engineering and Civil Engineering majors only.
Overall view of the professional field, particularly emphasizing the role of the human, and human factors, in safe working systems. Provides information relevant to understanding basic concepts associated with systems safety, such as the legislative environment, management culture, and sources of workplace hazards; understanding the need to consider the human when designing safe, complex systems; and analyzing a work system to predict its hazards and select possible interventions.
