S.No. Topic Learning objectives Teaching Guidlines  Methodology Time (Hrs)
1 Environment:

1. Atmosphere, environmental segments, composition of the atmosphere,

2. earth’s radiation balance, particulates, ions, radicals and their formation,

3.  chemical and photochemical reactions in the atmosphere,

4.  air pollution: oxides of C,N,S and their effects, acid-rain, smog formation, Green house effects (global warming and ozone depletion).

4. Analytical Methods for measuring air pollutants. Continuous monitoring instruments.

 

Students will be able to understand

1. The composition of atmosphere.

2. Able to describe the various photochemical reactions like photosynthesis and its importance for life.

3. Factors polluting the environment and their effect on life of living organisms.

4. Various methods used for the calculation of pollutants in air.

 

To tell students about the importance of a healthy and polution free atmosphere.

2. to explain the various factors like industrialization, not proper treatment of chemical  waste etc. which are polluting the environment.

3. methods to determine the level of pollution.

2.  Hydrosphere:

1. Chemical composition of water bodies-lakes, streams rivers, sea etc,

2. hydrological cycle, complexation in natural and waste water and microbially mediated redox reactions.

3. Water pollution-inorganic, organic pesticides, industrial and radioactive materials, oil spills and oil pollutants eutrophication, acid-mine drainage,

3. waste water treatment, domestic waste water aerobic and (anaerobic treatment), and industrial waste water treatment

 

Students will be able to understand

1.  the importance of water in life and the sources of water.

2. the role of water for a healthy environment and factors polluting it.

3. how polluted water effect the life of water animals and human life.

 

 

 

.

1. Explain to students the meaning of hydrosphere and also that the hydrosphere also includes reservoirs of water below ground and in the atmosphere. 2. Explain the water connects the land, ocean, and atmosphere.

4. Environmental Toxicology

1. Chemical solutions to environmental problems

2. Biodegradability, principles of decomposition,

3. Better industrial processes. Bhopal gas tragedy, Chernobyl, three mile island, Sewozo and Minamata disasters.

 

1. Students will be able to understand the various factors that are toxic for environment and to identify or find a solution for that.

2. able to describe the incidents like Bhopal gas tragedy which effect the whole state and has huge effect on the human health of that area.

1. Explain the students about environmental toxicology and chemistry including basic principles and target organ toxicity

2. Synthesize and apply concepts from multiple sub-disciplines in environmental chemistry and toxicology.
