Before taking this module it is advised that you should have passed: The Biosphere (ENVU4E4)
This module will focus on hydrological science at the catchment scale, introducing students to the environmental processes within the aquatic environment, and how these are linked, and influenced by the surrounding land. We will examine the theory and practice involved in the collection and interpretation of environmental data that will consider the dynamics of both quantity and quality of water in the running (lotic) and standing (lentic) water habitats that make up surface drainage networks
The module will be taught by four members of staff covering three specific areas:
In addition to the taught lectures, there will be three practical sessions, each relating to one of the specific areas of the course. The content of the practicals will therefore compliment the lecture materials and learning outcomes. Students will collect environmental data and collate, analyse and present their results in written reports that will form part of the assessment for the course.
