Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The objective is to learn chemical composition of natural, drinking and waste waters and to study processes in the waters as well as processes that affect forms of occurrence of individual substances in water, and to learn about distribution and properties of such substances. The subject deals with the origin, changes and impacts on various substances on properties of the water.

Summary

Hydrochemistry deals with physical and chemical properties of water, composition of water, chemical balance in waters and important inorganic and organic substances that may be present in waters. Properties of individual types of waters are described and evaluated.
