Fundamental understanding of sanitary and environmental engineering will be given in this lecture for civil engineers. Phenomena observed in estuaries, tidal rivers, lakes and reservoirs will be explained together with the water quality indicators. Environmental reaction kinetics, and transport phenomena will be explained, which are the major two fundamental areas in chemical engineering. Environmental risk analysis for chemical substances in water environment and related statistics will be given in this class.
