AEW-20706 Practical Aquatic Ecology and Water Quality; AEW-22806 Marine Systems
Introduction to the structure and functioning of marine and estuarine systems (on the island of Texel). Attention will be paid to mass transport from the sea to the island and vice versa, the distribution of sea grasses, food webs on mudflats and beach in relation to sediment type, migratory birds and bird predation pressure.
After this course the student will be able to:
- recognize marine and estuarine systems by their structure and functioning;
- apply a number of sampling and measuring techniques;
- independently setup and perform field experiments.
- make a workplan for an experiment;
- perform experiments in the field;
- analyse and present results.
Individual performance; assessment of report and poster.
A manual and lecture notes will be distributed during the course.
