LABORATORY SESSIONS

1  session devoted to photochemistry, one session devoted to composition of the troposphere , 1 session  devoted to the study of the quality of drinking water from different sources, and a session devoted to the study of a mud.

4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

Teaching will consist of lectures on the one hand, in which the theoretical content of the course with emphasis on current applications and case studies will be developed. On the other hand 4 laboratory experiments will be performed, two of them devoted to the chemistry of the atmosphere and the other two to the chemistry of the hydrosphere. The teaching methodology will be complemented with talks by students on subjects related with the course.

Students with special educational needs should contact the Student Attention Service (Servicio de Atención y Ayudas al Estudiante) in order to receive the appropriate academic support

5. ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGY

In order to pass the course alumni must attend to all lab sessions
