Environmental monitoring and protection

To conserve our environment, we need to ensure that any deterioration which can be prevented is addressed. This module is entirely online, and will equip you with knowledge of the different environmental monitoring techniques for water, noise, air, and waste; how to model and interpret the impacts of pollutants; and the techniques available to eliminate the pollutants. Computer models and rich examples make for an interesting and useful coverage of water pollution control, noise control, air quality management, and solid waste management. You will gain the skills necessary to undertake environmental assessment work, interpret the results, and suggest appropriate remedial measures, bearing in mind pollutants can be a reusable resource.
