Other activities


Cílem exkurze je ověření postupu terénních prací (monitorování znečištění) a postupu technologie při odstraňování staré ekologické zátěže. Před počátkem exkurze budou studenti seznámeni s typem znečištění lokality a její zátěží (plošnou a koncentrační úroveň polutantů), navrhnou technologii dekontaminace a tu ověří v terénu. Výsledkem bude zpráva o průběhu sanace včetně porovnání možností navržené technologie a dosažených výsledků reálně aplikované technologie.
