Course Content (Syllabus)
Investigation of geological formations. Investigation of underground aquifer. Qualitative evaluation of aquifers. Water as the main medium of pollutants propagation. Propagation mechanisms of pollutants. Numerical analysis of underground pollutants travel. Storage of solid and liquid waste (urban and other). Geological and geotechnical evaluation criteria of waste deposition sites. Natural (mainly geological) hazards. Magnitudes and indexes related to hazard. Numerical and empirical models for susceptibility and hazard assessment from natural hazards. Management of natural hazards.
