Organiska mikroföroreningar i vatten - mätning och transportprocesser

The course concerns organic micropollutants with focus on their analysis and transport processes in the aquatic environment. Lectures and laboratory sessions will be carried out to teach students how to: perform field sampling, perform chemical analysis of water samples for common micropollutants, and carry out a critical evaluation of the results. The course also includes lectures on other relevant areas such as legislation on guideline values of environmental micropollutants. Field sampling, written and oral presentation of the chemical analysis are obligatory parts of the course.

Förkunskapskrav

Students must be enrolled as PhD students in a subject that is related to the course themes (environmental sciences or equivalent).

Target Group: PhD students, (young) researchers and postdocs

Mål

The aim of this course is to introduce students to the research field of environmental chemistry by investigating the sources, transport and fate of organic micropollutants in the environment. The course will focus on measuring organic micropollutants and exploring their environmental transport processes in water.



After completion of the course the student will be able to

• Explain and discuss the transport and fate of common micropollutants in the aquatic environment (ILO 1)

• Summarize and compare different analytical methods to measure organic micropollutants in the aquatic environment (ILO 2)

• Perform the analysis of common organic micropollutants in water samples (ILO 3)

• Conduct a statistical evaluation of the analysis results and interpret the findings in terms of cycling of organic micropollutants in the aquatic environment (ILO 4)
