C&ENVENG 7108 - Environmental Engineering & Design IVA

North Terrace Campus - Semester 1 - 2015

Natural environments are complex systems involving many different drivers and interacting components. Such components include the ecological processes of species interaction, the physical processes of contaminant transport, and the human processes driven by social values, policy and economics. This course presents a dynamic systems approach towards understanding and modelling environmental systems. The emphasis will be on the development and analysis of models that describe the material flows and feedback processes within environmental systems, and the influence of environmental management. The dynamic systems framework will be applied to some of the following systems: surface water contamination; predator-prey systems; air pollution; species migration; and matter cycling in ecosystems. The project will involve an environmental design, or an environmental impact study.
