This course consists of a series of advanced modules from the discipline areas of water science, marine geosciences and aqueous geochemistry. The course combines advanced theory in these areas with integrated case studies and applications related to current research topics. The course is highly relevant for the reconstruction of past and present environments using water quality measurements and the remains of organisms. There is special emphasis on how these disciplines are used to constrain regional and global climate change.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
On satisfying the requirements of this course, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
1. Understand advanced concepts in water science, marine geosciences and aqueous geochemistry;
2. Explain how water quality measurements, sediment geochemistry and the remains of organisms can be used to reconstruct past and present environments;
3. Evaluate the role of marine geosciences in regional and global climate models;
4. Illustrate how advanced concepts in water science and marine geosciences shape current research directions; and
5. Apply these concepts to their Masters research project.
Assessment will be based on:
• Theory exam (50% LO 1-4)
• Practicals (50% LO 2-5)
The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity.
