19-20 GG2041: Environmental Change

Environmental Change is a second year option course that aims to address three key themes:

(1) Develop students' appreciation of the historical context which underpins theory concerning environmental history, present-day environmental problems, and the prediction of future environmental changes.
(2) Give practical training in laboratory methods relevant to testing such theories.
(3) Train students for readiness to undertake fieldwork and third year independent studies (dissertations) in a range of topical research themes in Quaternary environmental change.

The accent throughout the course is on precision and accuracy of methods used, and independent testing of theory and models of environmental change.
