Science of Water (7901ENV)

This course introduces students to some of the fundamental science which underpins the understanding of the whole of catchment water cycle, including water quality and water treatment for human consumption. The module introduces the properties of water (physical and chemical), as well as concepts relating to the natural hydrological cycle and the ecology of inland aquatic systems. The module also addresses the human uses of water and highlights the dynamic relationship between human and natural aquatic systems. The course content will utilise case study material. It is assumed that students have a basic understanding of chemical equations and stoichiometry. This module comprises key skills that are critical for a rigorous understanding of integrated water management problems. Please note: This course is restricted to those students enrolled in the Master of Integrated Water Management (Program 5722) or the Graduate Certificate in Integrated Water Management (Program 3346).
