Introduction to Catchment Processes (7301ESC)

Course profile

The key to understanding catchments is understanding the processes that form, maintain and transform them. Understanding these processes requires understanding elements of geology, geomorphology, hydrology, biogeochemistry, soil science, ecology and microbiology. The interplay of these processes and their management are at the heart of what makes catchment restoration and catchment management so challenging. World class catchment scientists are able to integrate and apply their understanding of these complex earth, water, land and ecological systems to manage them sustainability and, where necessary, to improve catchment stewardship. This course will provide an understanding of key catchment processes from a multi-disciplinary perspective to provide an integrated scientific framework for management intervention design, planning and implementation.
