General topic: Contaminants in the environment

  • sources, levels, transformations and long-range transport;
  • sampling and analytical techniques;
  • toxic and ecotoxic effects on biota, biotests and biomonitoring;
  • risk assessment, data analysis and modelling including GIS;

Special focus of the 7th Summer School: Climate change impacts on the presence of organic pollutants in the Arctic and their effects on human health

  • long-range transport of pollutants to remote environments (high mountains and Arctic);
  • deposition and distribution processes in such environments;
  • transformation processes in snow and ice;
  • influence of climate change on cycling of pollutants;
  • bioaccumulation in biota and health effects;

Programme structure:

  • lectures, workshops, laboratory exercises, computer aided seminars
  • field trip to Košetice observatory of the Czech Hydrometeorological Institute
  • (participating in the European Monitoring and Evaluation Programme, EMEP)
  • social event

The Summer School is organized in two groups:

  • Group A covering a wide range of general and special topic of environmental chemistry, ecotoxicology and risk assessment as described above;
    Programme Summer school 2011 - group A
  • Group B organized in cooperation with the Secretariat of the Stockholm Convention and the Czech Ministry of Environment as an intensive training course building capacities for assessment of persistent organic compounds in the environment for the purpose of the Global Monitoring Plan.
