Goals
Providing information about the properties and communities living in inland waters and aquatic life to gain the basic skills to work.
Content
Application field; characteristics of waters; aquatic organisms (algae, plankton, benthos, nekton); ecosystem, energy and productivity in inland waters; lentic and lotic ecosystems; lakes (structure, evolution, parameters, thermal stratification, water movements, classification, organisms); eutrophication; streams (characteristics, parameters, classification, organisms); limnological surveys and application technics; field works and laboratory experiments.

Learning Outcomes
1) Defines Inland waters (rivers, lakes, dams, ponds, lagoons, groundwater)
2) Classifies the internal waters, makes a limnological land study.
3) Gives information about the evolution, efficiency and nutrient status of lakes.
4) Describes the movement of water in lakes and stratification events
5) Distinguishes eutrophication in lakes and colored water.
6) Provides information on evolution, nutrient status and efficiency of rivers.
7) Gives information about the distribution of fish in rivers
8) Acquires basic skills for working in aquatic studies.
