Learning outcomes

TThe course aims to develop the understanding on the behavior of nitrogen and phosphorus in the biogeochemical circulation and, based on this, how it is possible to reduce the environmental effects of nitrogen and phosphorus. In specific, after the course the student is expected to understand the circulation of nitrogen and phosphorus, the processes mobilizing/immobilizing phosphorus in the soil, water and watersediments, the different forms of phosphorus and other factors contributing to eutrophication, the reasons for eutrophication. Student will also get knowledge of the paleolimnological methods used in investigating the eutrophication history of the lakes.

Contents

The focus of the course lies in the effects of nitrogen and phosphorus on eutrophicationl. However, larger-scale environmental problems are considered as well.
