Hydrology 1 (NOG21O2)

Introduction to the basic properties of water as matter and all forms of its occurrence on Earth, the formation of groundwater and the formation of river flows, their regime, the law of movement, the use and protection against irrational consumption and pollution.

Understanding the importance of water for life and human activity and perceiving the main reasons for the insufficient amount of usable water on Earth as a global problem. Also, training for assessing the water wealth of a territory by analyzing the water balance and water regime, as well as the assessment of water quality.
