Syllabus
Prerequisites: Fundamentals of physics, chemistry and biology
Target skills and knowledge: To study processes affecting agricultural non-point source pollution and strategies to couple crop production and water and soil protection; to study methods and instruments to measure agricultural pollution; to study mathematical models to simulate non-point source pollution.
Examination methods: Written test. two open questions and one problem
Assessment criteria: The evaluation will be based on the understanding of the topics, on the acquisition of concepts and methodologies proposed and the ability to apply them in an autonomous way.
Course unit contents: Agricultural non-point source pollution and its origin. Soil water potential.
Soil water dynamics. Hydraulic conductivities. saturated and unsaturated water movement and Darcy-Buckingham and Richards equations.
Chemical transport in the soil. Convection and dispersion transport. Soil erosion.
Soil erosion.
Methods to monitor runoff and percolation waters.
Strategies to mitigate agricultural water pollution. Structural and management BMPs.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Classroom lessons
Laboratory lessons
Field trips
