Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

ECTS points: 1.5
The lecture intend to give an introduction into basic principles of applied limnology. In particular, anthropogenic nutrient enrichment from the catchment known as 'eutrophication', their causes and consequences as well as control mechanisms and restoration possibilities with respect to lakes will be discussed. In this context, the case study 'Alte Donau' will be described in detail. The problem of acidification as a consequence of nearby and long-distant transport of house-hold and industrial emissions, their effects on fresh-waters and possible rehabilitation processes are the second core theme of the lecture. The wide field of pollution will be highlighted on a few examples such as organic substances, toxic compounds, and radioactivity, to name a few. The lecture finally details global environmental impacts such as climate change.
