This course explores how the various impact assessment methods are modeling the fate, transport & exposure pathways (causality chain, mechanisms) of emissions. The course allows participants to understand each impact category and why your results change when you use different impact assessment methods.
The course discusses the environmental science of impact categories and is intended for students who have not previously studied environmental science. This course will point out the strengths and weaknesses of the major internationally accepted impact assessment methods, thus allowing you to choose the best method for your LCA study.
The course is split up in to 5 three hour online sessions during the time of Sept 14 through Nov 30. For more details on how the course is split up and and what each session includes see the full course description.
