Summary

The course is focused on the inputs of pollutants into individual components of the environment, their transport and transformation in these components, including its influence. Attention is also paid to the assessment of risks associated with the presence of pollutants in the environment. The possibility of limiting the entry of pollutants into the environment and their elimination from the environment is also addressed. Learning outcomes of the course unit The aim of the course is to focus on methods of research and monitoring of pollutants in individual components of the environment so that the student obtains a comprehensive overview of the most important contaminants and methods of their determination.
