Aims

This module aims to provide a technical framework for field-based studies of hydrological environments and to facilitate the development of expertise in specific measurement, analytical and interpretation techniques.

Brief description

This module is centred on a residential field course normally held during the Easter vacation of the second year. This module aims to provide a technical framework for field-based studies of hydrological environments and to facilitate the development of expertise in specific measurement, analytical and interpretation techniques. Through this module students will become technically proficient in the field operation of hydrological, hydrometeorological and aquatic geochemistry instruments, develop skills in the selection and implementation of appropriate methodologies for the measurement, sampling and analysis of parameters in the hydrological cycle, and be able to present and interpret data in a rigorous and technically-sound manner.

Notes

This module is at CQFW Level 5
