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:

Model and interpret the movement of water in rivers, estuaries and the coastal ocean

Model and interpret the movement of sediments in rivers, estuaries and the coastal ocean

Proficiently use parameters needed to characterise hydrodynamics and sediment transport dynamics of rivers, estuaries and the coastal ocean

interpret and evaluate causal relationships between hydrodynamics, sediment transport processes and the geomorphic evolution of rivers, estuaries and beaches.
