Curriculum Context


Course Description



Course Description: This course will provide a detailed introduction to the major categories of anthropogenic impacts on marine systems. The types of waste to be covered include: degradable wastes, oil pollution, heavy metals, halogenated hydrocarbons, radioactivity, solid wastes, heat, and noise. For each type of waste the mechanisms of effect, sources, and impacts on the plants, animals and cycles in the marine and estuarine environments will be explored. The implications these effects have for human health, food resources, commercial interest and wildlife conservation will be examined as well.
Through case studies and practical exercises students will examine how scientific understanding is used to inform environmental management, thereby providing a link between science and society in a wider context. Students will be required to form independent, rational, scientific judgements that must be justified and supported with tested evidence. 


PhD preferred, or MSc with comparable experience.  Submit letter of application and CV by email.
