Annotation -
The course focuses on the application of available analytical and numerical tools for solving the spectrum of problems related to contamination transport. The knowledge developed in seminars will be employed in solving selected environmental engineering issue in the form of a project report. This with the active participation in the seminars will be part of the final evaluation.
