- Soils, Pollution and the Environment
|Coordinator(s)||Susan Wilson (email@example.com)|
Polluted and degraded soils cost us millions of dollars every year. They limit productivity and present real human health and environmental risks. This unit focusses on soil pollution and prepares students to manage key globally important soil degradation issues in industry, mining and agriculture. Topics include: pollutant behaviour and effects, policy and regulation, sampling and analysis, risk assessment, remediation and rehabilitation, salinity and acidification. Through site visits, industry speakers, practical and field activities students will gain the skills needed to become informed environmental managers able to apply best practice to real world problems underpinned by sound science.
