This popular course explores contemporary issues that affect our everyday lives such as globalisation, sustainability, environmental management, conservation, geoarchaeology, nature and society, the problems of contemporary cities, and culture and landscape, as well as alternative ways of solving the problems associated with them.
Dr Helen Walkington examines the evolution of heritage landscapes and their conservation and management through a study of the physical and human processes that have impacted upon them.
Dr Wes Fraser outlines how this module will enable students to develop a broad understanding of atmospheric science, and how observational geographical research contributes to the global "big picture" of environmental change. The module will look at how investigation of the chemical and physical nature of the atmosphere ultimately leads to informing the climate change policy-making process.
