Title: How Humans Change the Atmosphere PDF
Url: https://esa21.kennesaw.edu/activities/atmosphere/atms_airpollution.pdf
Creator: Fox, Chris
Publisher: Kennesaw State University
Description: This exercise, from the Environmental Science Activities for the 21st Century Project, is designed to introduce students to the idea that human activities can alter the chemistry or gaseous composition of the atmosphere, resulting in a variety of impacts on human health and the environment. Discussion topics include indoor pollution and local (point- or non-point source) pollution. Students will perform an activity in which they use an online resource from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to research point-source polluters in the area where they live. They will identify facility names, addresses, and potential environmental concerns, as well as generate maps showing the locations of these sources. Students then answer questions about the information they uncover.
