Module 08 – Environmental Toxicology
This module serves as an introduction to the principles of environmental toxicity: air pollution, water pollution, and chemical transport and fate. Using these materials, students will learn examples of pollutants and their effects on human health and the environment through multiple case studies and in-class discussions. These lecture slides comprise mostly case studies and provide a good outlook on the chemistry through consideration of specific human experiences across the globe. Supplementary information such as activities and discussions are found within the lecture slides, not in separate documents.
