Course content
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.

Learning activities and teaching methods
Monologic (reading, lecture, briefing), Excursion
  • Preparation for classes - 70 hours per semester
  • Semestral paper - 40 hours per semester
  • Class attendance - 24 hours per semester
  • Preparation for exam - 80 hours per semester
Learning outcomes
Limnology of lakes and reservoirs, especially nutrient cycles (carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus, sulfur, etc.), eutrophication, transport of solids from catchment area and mathematical modeling of hydrodynamics and water quality in water bodies.
tudents can apply an active working approach and are capable of independent scientific activity in the field. They are able to use a large amount of relevant data (professional literature, their own practical experience in the field, experience of experts), which they are able to analyse, critically evaluate and draw appropriate conclusions. Graduates can apply these skills creatively in their research activities. Students are well prepared for further independent learning and sustained professional growth in the field. Graduates have mastered the ability to think analytically and synthetically.
Students are able to work independently in the field, but they have also mastered the principles of teamwork. They are equipped with the ability to formulate and present their own opinions and communicate them in their native language and in a world language. They are able to communicate information, ideas, identify problems and propose possible solutions without problems. They are able to critically evaluate their approach to a problem; they are able to defend their professional opinion using arguments they have acquired through study and practical experience in the field.

Assessment methods and criteria
Student performance assessment, Combined exam

The scope of knowledge corresponds to the SZZ at ZF JU. Students of the combined form of study have the same obligations as students of the full-time form.
