Course language


Large global changes, and climate change in particular, are having significant impacts on the environment. The study of impacts and mitigation/adaptation measures in the marine environment requires a truly interdisciplinary approach. It is essential that scientists, engineers and environmental decision-makers understand the fundamentals of the causes, impacts and management measures involved in dealing with such important issues. The course specialises in the challenges facing the marine environment and is part of the University’s programme of teaching and research in climate change related issues. There are a variety of optional modules available but the core modules are listed below.
