Hydrology 2 (NOG22O2)

Introduction with hydrological objects on Earth that have specific forms of water movement (lakes, swamps, glaciers and the World Sea) - with their origin, properties and legitimacy of movement. Also, the aim is to point to their significance, the forms of use and protection.

Acquiring knowledge about the entire hydrological sphere of the Earth and the ability to detect and analyze hydrological problems, as well as to find appropriate measures for their elimination.
