Water Environment and Life Science University of Tsukuba
Water is one of the most important medium that determines the conditions of life and Water is cycling on earth, so that the dynamics of water environment is one of the key issues for controlling bioresource. On the other hand, biological method to quantify the hazardous contaminants such as endocrine disrupters that define the availability of water resource have been developed recent decades. Lecture will cover the topics related to dynamics of natural water environment; water cycle, climate change, diffusion of substances, hydraulics in stratified water body, material transportation and environmental risk assessment of endocrine disrupter, theoretically and practically.
Understanding the water environment which is the habitat of several bioresources.
Expertise, English Language Proficiency
The students will be evaluated by the report submission. Grade (A +, A, B, C) is determined based on how clearly and comprehensibly can explain the contents of each lecture.
