Module overview

Environmental Scientists need to be able to collect and analyse data relating to a wide range of disciplines, and to be able to interpret this data in relation to “real world” applications. This module introduces you to science in context, with the content cutting across and linking with other part 1 provision, particularly ENVS1005 (reinforcement of quantitative and analytical methods) and ENVS1007 (training in field, practical and research techniques). After initial training in how to access University systems and to carry out basic data exploration using Excel, ENVS1006 consists of a series of topic specific units, each of which begins with a problem or question (e.g. highlighting the societal need or concern) and then trains you to collect data in order to address that question.
