Course Description

The course provides the insight into the sources of marine pollution and handling of control and management. The sections are described to acquaint knowledge and understanding of basic categories of pollutants, their fate/behavior is the marine environment, the technologies used for restoration, as well as the methodologies for the evaluation/estimation of pollution, combining the theory with problems/applications. The participants improve their abilities how to solve problems by applying case studies. In order to improve and manage marine pollution, knowledge in several areas is necessary including the fate of organic pollutants, chemical conversions, and their effects on water environment and welfare, measurement of pollutant levels as well as using learning techniques to predict the costs of marine quality improvement policies. As a result, gradually new knowledge is obtained, related to analysis and synthesis of data is relevant fields of pollution, useful for the future professional activities.

Course Objectives

  • Understanding marine pollution sources such as land-based sources, vessels waste, Offshore activity generates minor pollution primarily through the use of oily drilling muds and by production blow outs
  • Introduce to the international legal framework on marine pollution, which covers global and regional legally binding and non-legally binding agreements addressing different sources of pollution.
  • Define and distinguish different sources of marine pollution especially land based sources
  • Identify global and regional agreements and initiatives addressing marine pollution
  • The major common marine pollutants and the marine pollution management approaches
