Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of this subject is information application and regularity from geochemistry to the environment and technogennous mineral phases form the point of view of their other utilization and minimization of occurrence of pollution. The background for assessing of antropogenous contamination is the determination of geogenic background.

Summary

Cílem předmětu je aplikace informací a zákonitostí z oblasti geochemie na životní prostředí a technogenní minerální fáze, a to jak z hlediska jejich dalšího využití, tak z hlediska minimalizace výskytu znečišťujících látek. Základem pro posuzování antropogenní kontaminace je zvládnutí problematiky určování geogenního pozadí. Předmět navazuje na základní informace získané během magisterského studia z oblasti geochemie.
