Course Objective Aims of this course are to define soil pollution, compare soil contaminant values with maximum contaminant levels given in the regulation, select proper remedial action is to treat contaminated sites by developing methods
Course Content Definition of soil pollution and Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs). POPs persist in the environment and bioaccumulate through the food chains. Therefore POPs pose a risk of causing adverse effects to human health and the environment. Selection of proper remedial action is to treat contaminated sites by developing methods
# Course Learning Outcomes Teaching Methods Assessment Methods
1 Selection of proper remedial action is to treat contaminated sites by developing methods Lecture, Drilland Practice, Testing, Oral Exam, Homework, Performance Task,
