Limnologie - Limnology
This summer semester always Thursdays 11:30-13:00 here on OPAL in the "virtual classroom".
What do I learn?: Limnology is the cradle of modern ecology and important ecological theory aspects were developed in freshwaters. At the same time, there are important and challenging physical and chemical aspects. Also, freshwater ecosystems are critical compartmens of many global element cycles, and - of course - clean and abundant water is a fundamental prerequisit for our lifes. You see - limnology is both important and challenging. Successful participants see limnological system with "new eyes" and are capable of tackling related problems independently. You will be qualified to work in respective professional applications.

Prerequisites: Formal: Basics of Biology, Chemistry, and Physics (related B.Sc.); Informal: Motivation, dedication, active participation, ...
Exam: Successful participation and a meaningful professional protocol on the field training unit are prerequisites to partake in the exam. The exam consists of a written 90 minute test.Details on the related field course you find in a separate OPAL module (which will be updated when we discussed how excursions can be possible)
Update 1 (15.04.): if you want to take the practical unit, try to safe the date of AUG 8-11, and let me know if there are any issues with this date
Update 2 (4.05.): I added the final slides of lecture 4 and included some background reading for carbonate equilibria, and also explained the units in slide 33 of lecture 3.
This is the Limnology class, TU BA Freiberg, of the 2021 summer semester led by Maximilian Lau.
This class will be (mostly) taught in English.
