- Module 1:
Introduction to laboratory facilities to new students
- Module 7:
Laboratory practical training for water quality analysis including field methods for the courses in Water Resources and Environmental Management courses.
- Module 11:
Final topic choice “Applied Geochemistry” for the postgraduate diploma course in Applied Earth Sciences course
- Module 11:
Water Resources and Environmental Management courses “Hydrologic and Environmental Modeling”
Regular MSc research PhD related activities
- Around module 15:
MSc fieldwork prepartaion for the courses in Water Resources and Environmental Management and Applied Earth Sciences
- Autumn till the end of the year:
Analysis of sample material collected by students in the Water Resources and Environmental Management and Applied Earth Sciences courses
A number of PhD researchers from the Earth Systems Analysis, Natural Resource Survey and Water Resources departments are using lab facilities for activities ranging from very simple sample treatment procedures to complicated tests and analytical procedures.
