Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2019-20

La asignatura Contaminación Marina es una asignatura de tipo Obligatoria que se imparte en el tercer curso (quinto semestre) del Grado de Ciencias de Mar. El objetivo fundamental de esta asignatura es el de transmitir al alumnado el conocimiento de los diferentes contaminantes que pueden estar presentes en el mar y los efectos que ellos tengan sobre los seres vivos que lo habitan. En la parte de la asignatura impartida por el departamento de Ingeniería Química, se describirán de forma general las principales fuentes y características de los grupos de contaminantes más importantes. En la parte correspondiente al departamento de Ecología, se describirá el efecto de cada uno de los contaminantes sobre la biocenosis marina. Se estudiarán las pautas generales del efecto que produce la contaminación marina a nivel de individuo, de población y de comunidad. Para el buen aprovechamiento de esta asignatura serán útiles los conocimientos adquiridos en la formación básica del Grado en Ciencias del Mar, como la Química y la Estadística, así como otras asignaturas obligatorias cursadas en los semestres tercero y cuarto como la Biología Marina, Botánica Marina, Zoología Marina y Ecología.
