Course content

An experimental set-up will be used as a case to analyse the effects of eutrophication and to familiarise participants with techniques that are common in ecological research. 

Ample attention will be paid to the development of a critical scientific approach, including study design, statistical analysis and data presentation.In a fieldwork study, hydrological, chemical and biological measurements will be integrated into an overall evaluation of the water quality in a river catchment. Modelling tools will be applied in an exercise to evaluate the effects of eutrophication, in a shallow lake and the potentials for restoration, including a cost-benefit analysis.
