  • Overview

    This module will focus on hydrological science at the catchment scale, introducing students to the
    environmental processes within the aquatic environment, and how these are linked, and influenced by the
    surrounding land. We will examine the theory and practice involved in the collection and interpretation of
    environmental data that will consider the dynamics of both quantity and quality of water in the running
    (lotic) and standing (lentic) water habitats that make up surface drainage networks
    The module will be taught by four members of staff covering three specific areas: Channel form, flow and
    sediment dynamics; Hydrochemistry; Limnology
