Content, progress and pedagogy of the
- Knowledge on technology and applicability of in-situ physical
and biological methods for remediation of contaminated soil and
groundwater zones at polluted soil sites.
- To analyse, synthesize and evaluate contaminant spill
situations in regard to risk for area use and soil and groundwater
resources around a polluted soil site.
- To apply selected methods to measure water transport
parameters, solute transport parameters, gas transport parameters,
and/or biodegradation coefficients in soil and groundwater.
- To model transport of fluids (water and/or air) and transport
and degradation of contaminants in soil and groundwater, using own
models for one dimensional problems and ready-available software
for two or three dimensional problems.
