Description

This free online course introduces you to the Sorption-Desorption Processes in soil and the methods of transporting contaminants. You will learn about the significant role played by the properties, environmental variables and corrosion potential of the soil. This course is arranged systematically and presented clearly so you will easily be able to understand the given concepts.

Next, the course will explain the various types of flow to the porous media and the mechanism of containment transport through the advection and diffusion process. The course then demonstrates the process of Modelling Diffusion in soils using Impedance Spectroscopy. The course emphasizes the factors that are influencing and affecting the mechanism of Contaminant Transport. 

Finally, you will learn about the importance and challenges of Sorption and Desorption Characteristics of Geomaterials. The importance and the methodologies employed for characterizing Geomaterials based on Thermal Properties are also discussed. The Fundamentals of Soil Characteristics is an informative course which will interest students studying Civil Engineering, researchers in the Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering fields, or those who have an interest in these topics.
