Description:

Tématika výuky zahrnuje limnologické a hydrochemické aspekty ekologie jezer a umělých nádrží, např. koloběhy živin (C, N, P, S), organické hmoty (primární produkce, humusové látky) a dalších prvků (Si, Fe, Mn, Al) v ekosystému "povodí - nádrž/jezero" a vododohospodářské řízení množství a kvality vody v nádržích.

Teaching topics include limnological and hydrochemical aspects of ecology of lakes and artificial reservoirs, e.g. cycles of nutrients (C, N, P, S), organic matter (primary production, humic substances) and other elements (Si, Fe, Mn, Al) in the ecosystem "catchment - reservoir/lake" and water management of the quantity and quality of water in reservoirs.
