This subject is aimed at presenting some basic concepts about the physics and chemistry of natural waters as well as some key ideas about water quality. Elemental water chemistry concepts are combined with other practical topics like natural water sampling, data analysis and graphical representation. More advanced contents include the description of processes governing the variability of the chemical composition of natural waters in its different reservoirs (precipitation, continental lotic and lentic systems, ground water, sea water).
