Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

describe the complex physical, geological, chemical and biological processes (biogeochemistry) in different ecosystems

demonstrate advanced skills related to the collection and storage of sediment, water, and biological samples

synthesise complex data sets to produce technical reports for a scientific audience.
