Annotation -
Students will learn the principles of portable analytical methods and their use for analyzes in the field. They learn to choose a suitable analytical method for specific types of samples, learn the principles of correct sampling and in-situ analysis. Students will also acquire practical skills with field analyzers and will be familiar with the basics of safety at work with portable analytic devices.
