The course is focused on gaining some practical skills in the issue of sampling various matrices of the natural environment in order to monitor and measure basic physical, chemical and microbiological parameters. This practical training is a continuation of the subject "Sampling in Environmental Analysis". The course consists of two parts and is taught in a block (the time range is 2 weeks). In the first part of the course the students are at a real location in the field, and take and collect real samples. Taken samples are analysed by students in the follow-up process in the analytical part of this course (Week 2), which takes place in the laboratories of the Department of Environmental Protection. Individual laboratory tasks are divided so they cover the wide field of sampling various components of the environment. Students work in groups. The sampling procedure and the analytical results from each task are processed into final report.
Aim of the course -
Last update: TAJ240 (18.11.2013)

Students will be able to:

Perform sampling of the different matrix in the environment

Write i the sampling protocols according to applicable legislation

Prepare a sampling plan

Successful completion of the course is conditional on submitting the final report, which will include description of sampling procedures and results from all analyses.
