Air Quality Tools for Environmental and Risk (Consequences) Assessment Studies (in-person training)


Course Date

3-4 October 2022

This course is located in Doha, Qatar at the Texas A&M University at Qatar Engineering Building.

Course Overview

Introduction of the fundamentals of air pollution with a consideration of the measurement and modeling methods and a commentary on current worldwide and local air quality policies and standards. The course also describes the health impacts of air pollution and outlines the main preventing and controlling mechanisms. In addition, it outlines the most important aspects of toxic gas releases and emergency response modelling tools. Finally, participants will receive a hands on experience using one of the preferred atmospheric dispersion models by US Environmental Protection Agency (the same models are also recommended for local environmental impact assessment studies).

Learning Outcomes

  • Identify the risks from air pollution
  • Classify and compare the measurement and monitoring methods of air pollution
  • Appraise the regulatory control of air pollution
  • Discuss, examine and apply atmospheric dispersion models

Who Should Attend

This course is intended for engineers and consulting companies who often have to prepare relevant studies, personnel from industrial facilities who need to improve their related procedures and address technical challenges, and public services such as scientists and engineers who review environmental studies and policy makers.
