Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Aim subject is education in the area legislature from special usage hydrogeology rates at drainage mine and opencast runnings.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations
Project work


The goal of the subject is to make students acquainted with the basic information about geological hydrodynamics structures of rock mass and their classification, circulation of water in a rock mass, determination of a basic hydraulic properties of rock mass and soils. The subject is focused to the water drainage of deep mines, surface mining, quarries, tunnels, the active and passive measures of water protection, protection of geology water layers.
