1015118 - GEOLOGIA AMBIENTALE E NORMATIVA GEOLOGICA
Module 1015119 - GEOLOGIA AMBIENTALE
Teacher: Giovanna PAPPALARDO
Expected Learning Outcomes
The objective of this module is to acquire knowledge and skills of hydrogeology applied to the environment. The topics concern the regulatory directives of the Consolidated Law on the Environment 152/2008 for the protection and evaluation of groundwater resources. Acquisition of skills on the dynamics of the aquifer system and evaluation through pumping tests, and on the geochemistry of water. Skills for the study of coastal aquifers, on the saline intrusion problem. Water circulation in rock masses.
Generally the teaching takes place through lectures and practical lessons in the classroom, with the support of multimedia material (slides projected during the lessons) and handouts. Mandatory attendance.
The teacher will explain to the students the procedures for calculating some topics of the program.
If the teaching is given in a mixed or remote mode, the necessary changes with respect to what was previously stated may be introduced, in order to respect the program envisaged and reported in the syllabus.
Knowledge of hydrogeology, basic chemistry and landslide risk and rock mechanics is required.
Attendance of Lessons
Attendance to lessons is compulsory. For working students, reference is made to the University teaching regulations.
Information for students with disabilities and / or SLD:
To guarantee equal opportunities and in compliance with the laws in force, interested students can ask for a personal interview with the teacher in order to plan any compensatory and / or dispensatory measures, according to the didactic objectives and specific needs. It is also possible to contact the referent teacher CInAP (Center for Active and Participated Integration - Services for Disabilities and / or SLD) of our Department
