To give the students fundamental knowledge of water and contaminant transport, sorption and degradation in soil, and the use of geostatistical methods in contaminated soil studies. The student should understand the links between the physical, chemical and biological processes in soil. The student should know the principles behind and how to apply relevant laboratory and field methods for measurement of water and solute transport in soil. Furthermore, the student should know the principles behind and the applicability of relevant physical- and biological-based remediation methods for contaminated soil sites, and be able to calculate one-dimensional water and solute transport in the soil vadose zone.
Lectures, etc. supplemented with project work, workshops, presentation seminars, lab tests.
The module is 5 ECTS which is corresponding to 150 hours of study.
