Geophysical methods and the detection of environmental contamination
May 18 - June 3
This is a course endorsed by EFG.
Outline of content
The production of waste is a problem that has always accompanied the human being. In the last few decades, this problem has become increasingly larger and more difficult to control. For this reason, ways of minimizing this waste have been created over the past few years. At the same time, the techniques used have evolved so that the storage of different types of waste is less harmful to the environment. However, many wastes have been stored improperly for many years. Therefore, to identify places contaminated by these residues. there are more innovative ways to detect them without having to use invasive methods. This course will focus on geophysical methods and their application on assessing environmental contamination, giving relevance to mapping on large scale, and its benefits in terms of cost reduction in comparison to other current methods (water and soil sampling, for example).
This online course will focus on the great potential of these techniques and at the same time provide trainees with knowledge that will allow them to put these techniques into practice, thus contributing to a global advance in the area of environmental remediation.
– To promote knowledge of techniques that allow the detection of contamination in environmentally degraded places, caused by the deficient storage of urban solid waste deposits
– To encourage the use of this indirect approach to all types of places that require environmental remediation;
– To develop skills that will allow all trainees to implement the concepts and knowledge obtained in their current or future workplaces, increasing their performance in all their activities;
– To contribute to a greater motivation of all stakeholders in the area of geosciences, showing that there is still much to be done and that the role of each one in the future is relevant and really very important in environmental issues.
