This course considers some of the chemical processes involved in water pollution. It covers topics such as toxicology, risk assessment, kinetics, sorption, biotransformation, phototransformation, redox processes,the use of stable isotopes and chemodynamics of pollutants together with potable water and wastewater treatment processes. Chemical aspects of water pollution problems of local and contemporary interest such as cyanobacteria and acid sulfate soils are examined. Chemical groups such as nutrients, PAHs and dioxins are considered with emphasis on their behaviour and mode of action. Assessment involves write up of lab work, a mid-semester exam and an end of semester exam. Incompatible: AES3081 Chemical Pollution; 3431AES Water Pollution Chemistry.
