Annotation -
The aplication of methods used for water and wastewater analysis in laboratory are discussed in this course. The choice of methods is based on routine analytical practice. Students become acquainted with steps af analytical procedures, interferences, methods of sample pre-treatment, calculations and interpretation of results. Attention is paid to the choice of analytical method for concrete analyte and to the processing of the data gained and its evaluation in final protocol.

Aim of the course -

Students will know the determination methodology of common components of drinking, surface and sewage water and they will know the principles of all determinations. Students will know the procedure of each hydroanalytic determination and they will be able to calculate the results from the measured values, including the correct interpretation of the obtained results.
