GEO3127 People and Global Environmental Issues
Credit Points: 15

Geographic perspectives on contemporary environmental issues and problems relevant to local, regional and global environment. Environmental issues, such as pollution of air, water and land, are examined as problems where an understanding of the ecological processes is necessary, but the role of human processes is pin-pointed to show how the two must go hand in hand if an acceptable solution of problems is to be found.  Geographic techniques are presented as practical activities and in field investigations.
