This subject contains the following additional online materials
The course acquaints students with measuring instruments and procedures applicable in modern conception of environmental protection and its monitoring. The environment itself can be defined by three basic components – air, water, soil – their physical and chemical properties are discussed in detail. Students will also get acquainted with the basics of meteorology as a science describing the state of the Earth's atmosphere.
