Skrócony opis:

The main objectives of this course are to identify the different human activities affecting the quality of soils and waters, understand the processes involved, and evaluate the effects of such impacts. In practical classes, the students will be familiarized with standard analytical techniques for the characterization of soil and water samples and with different transformations of urban, industrial and intensively cultivated soils during field observations.
