About this Unit
The unit explores how the earth has been irreversibly altered through human activities. Topics include-the composition of the ocean, land, and atmosphere, and the impacts humans have had on these systems. The unit looks at the detection and control of modern pollutants with a focus on field sampling and modelling of selected environmental systems. These topics will be brought to life in a two-day field trip to sites of significant anthropogenic impact.

Special Requirements - Essential Equipment
Safety glasses and laboratory coat, laboratory book, enclosed footwear
