This course aims as introducing the physical, chemical, and biological dimensions of the water quality, and the natural as well as the anthropogenic factors/processes affecting them. Special emphasis will be given to water pollution in terms of composition, sources, fate, control, and remediation. Environmental isotopes as an effective tool for water scientists working in arid and semi-arid regions will be exploited. Water quality regulations will be presented. Planning and setting up water quality monitoring and assessment programs will be introduced. Trainees will be able to display, characterize, interpret, and model water quality data, using different methods and techniques such as statistical, GIS, and specialized software. They will be able to build up 15 water quality indices. They will be also able to apply isotopic methods in water quality management.
