In this final lecture, Professor Goldwhite will investigate Chemistry and the Environment. You will start by looking at the impact of Greenhouse Gases on Global Climate Change through the last 100 years. Then you will look at Water Pollution in terms of Eutrophication with Fertilizers, Organic Pollutants such as Chlorinated Hydrocarbons (DDT), Dioxins, and Phthalates, and Heavy Metal Pollutants such as Lead, Chromium, and Arsenic. Lastly, you will look at Thresholds of Radiation in the Environment.
in atmosphere includes oxides of N and S acid rain
effect and greenhouse gases including carbon dioxide, methane,
led to the ozone hole in the atmosphere
pollutants: phosphates and N compds lead to algal growth,
eutrophication; many other concerns including trace organics,
Cr(VI), perchlorates, Pb, As etc.
as pollutant; effect of natural radon
of measurement of radiation and harmful levels
