Climatology, geomorphology, hydrology



Assumptions and objectives of the course:

Discussion on dominated (in global scale) contemporary changes of natural environment influencing by climate and human impact.



The form and terms of assessment of the course:

Written examination



Registration for the course / additional notes:

yes


Content:

Main forms of human activity, changes in time, expansion in global scale, natural consequences: agriculture (main crops, watering and drying land meliorations, urbanisation, deforestation, industrialisation, river regulation, water dams, atmosphere, water and soil pollution, greenhouse effect, waste disposal, radioactive pollution, noise, degradation of ozonosphere, chemical impact on the environment). Selected environmental problems in global scale: climate changes, increase of frequency of extreme events (floods, droughts, hurricanes), acidification of the environment, increase of the content of heavy and light metals in soils, deposits and water, landscape degradation (loss of habitats, decrease of biodiversity), soil erosion, rapid silting of dam reservoirs, desertification, water eutrophisation, biotechnologies, consequences of rapidly expanding tourism. Measures of prevention against negative changes in natural environment, possibilities of their applications in developed and developing countries. Forms of nature protection in the world, perspectives.
