School for Young Scientists “Pollutant and sediment mobility in river systems: monitoring studies to identify human impacts” will be hosted by the Faculty of Geography at the Lomonosov Moscow State University on 25-27 November 2020. It will be based on extensive online lectures given by leading experts in the field of water and sediment quality, environmental monitoring and applied hydrogeochemestry. See the full topic list here.
This website contains all of the details and materials for the school, along with resources for further learning and practice. The materials shared here are free and open source and may be shared and adapted under the Creative Commons License.
Expected audience: bachelor, master and PhD students, young scientists in hydrogeochemestry, ecology, hydrology and other areas.
All registered participants of the school will get a certificate of the attendance (upon request). Please note the LOC will follow the presence of the participants during lectures. We reserve the right to reject the certificate delivery in case of “no show”.
The School is organized with the financial support from the Russian Science Foundation (grant No 19-77-30004).
