Lectures: Dr. Mark Healey (NUI), Dr. Kaisa Heikkinen (SYKE), Dr. Anna-Kaisa Ronkanen (UOulu) and prof. Björn Klöve (UOulu)
Location: University of Oulu
Introduction: Constructed wetlands are widely used as a technology in water treatment to treat runoff from various sources such as mining, agriculture, forestry and to polish water from municipal sources. The short course provides an introduction to the topic and provide knowledge on some key aspects of treatment wetlands.
Course outline: lectures by experts and PhD candidates. Credits: 1-2 ECTS*
