About this education
Many environmental risks and societal concerns are directly related to the way we manage our land and water environments. The course involves integrated natural and social science handling of natural and anthropogenic flows of water, nutrients, pollutants and other biogeochemical substances that are important for environmental risk assessment, ecosystem development, and management of the environment and natural resources. It includes principles and methods for quantifying and handling uncertainty, probability and risk, as well as environmental and ecological economics. The course focus is on land and water systems, but the principles and methods are generally applicable and useful in different earth and environmental science contexts and applications.
