Environmental Monitoring is an online unit suited to anyone who has an interest in local and global sustainability issues, and is designed to furnish you with a deeper understanding of the various environmental monitoring techniques currently being used by environmentalists and scientists today.
As an online unit offered by Open Universities Australia in partnership with Murdoch University, the unit comprehensively addresses a range of monitoring systems including geographic information systems, social monitor programs, and biomonitoring with AUSRIVAS. You will look at monitoring everything from soil quality and vegetation to marine wildlife, air quality and mine sites.
On completion of the unit, you will have learned the importance of integrated responses to the many problems of sustainability, building the idea of a consilient approach to environmental issues. You will also understand environmental issues that take place on a local, regional and global stage, and learn to appreciate the interaction of these scales and how this can affect environmental sustainability.
