Training session no. 1 – Sample collection and physicochemical analysis on site
2020-04-27 @ 19:00 - 20:00 EEST
In this training session 2 topics were presented, namely:
1) Training procedure of volunteers regarding water, sediment and soil sampling for microbiology analysis – In this training session, the volunteer students were informed about the proper sampling of water, soil and sediment, needed for isolation of microorganisms that will be further used in bioremediation methods. The steps of sampling were described as well as work conditions and equipment needed.
2) Sampling and processing of ecotoxicology and remediation samples – This presentation described the methods to be used for the correct collection of ecotoxicology and remediation samples from the established sites, as well as how these samples will be processed in the laboratory. Methods of sampling were described for water, both surface and from well, sediment and soil samples, as well as the ecotoxicology assays that could be conducted on the collected samples and the identification method for inferior organisms that might be used in the remediation of polluted waters due to mining activities.
