Like all things in the universe, Earth is made up of a simple collection of composite elements. The complex interactions of those elements make the Earth’s environments what they are today. In The Changing Environment, you will learn the environmental composition and development of Earth from its initial formation to its current state.
Provided by Open Universities Australia and Curtin University, this online unit will give you a broad introduction to environmental science. With that base of knowledge you will analyse different theories of the Earth’s creation and development. You will discuss geological occurrences such as volcanoes and earthquakes to aid your understanding.
The unit also delves into the hydrosphere and atmosphere, to explore how the different elements of the sky and sea combine to maintain the functioning environments of Earth.
An introductory level of prior knowledge in the area is assumed e.g. from studying related level 1 units.
