Course Description

This programme focuses on the analysis of dynamic environments, past. present, and future. Concerns over human impacts on the environment have stimulated demand from governments and industry for the monitoring, analysis and modelling of natural processes in environmental systems. This is essential to improve understanding of the interrelation of environmental variables in order to predict and manage responses to anthropogenic perturbations

Course Objectives

  • Understanding the appropriate level of advanced theoretical knowledge and practical expertise required to collect, interpret, and analyse contemporary and past environmental data
  • Modelling skills required to investigate the interrelationships between environmental variables, and to predict their responses to changing internal and external conditions
  • Learning the intellectual and practical skills required to design and undertake field and/or laboratory experiments in contemporary environmental process-monitoring, or environmental reconstruction, and to design and test appropriate environmental models with the collected data
