Environmental Pollution: Air, Water and Soil II

Analyse effects of environmental pollution on human health and ecosystem in a variety of settings — in the class, field, laboratory, and through models of the environment.

This course will emphasise understanding the effects of environmental pollution (air, water and soil) on human health and ecosystems. In addition, the students will also be exposed to the socio-economic ramifications of pollution and how it drives public policy. 

Students will also be taught the theoretical and practical aspects of environmental impact assessment (EIA), which is becoming an important part of developmental projects and public policy. 

Experiments in monitoring different elements of environmental pollution will be carried out by students over the entirety of the course in a variety of settings, including the field, the laboratory, and the modelling environment.
