This subject will allow a student to undertake a program of study that goes beyond the boundaries of other semester subjects. It aims to encourage cross discipline interaction and to bring together and develop further skills and experience learned from different subjects and courses. The subject is directed to those students whose previous results have indicated that they have the potential ability to pursue a study with a minimum of direction.
1. understand the characteristic differences between rivers, lakes and estuaries and their implications for assessment.
2. understand various physical, chemical and biological assessment methods and their application.
3. be able to assess waterway condition by integrating physical, chemical and biological information.
4. understand processes that are important in different kinds of aquatic systems.
5. understand aspects of river, lake and estuary systems that are particularly relevant to Australia.
An above average academic record, and permission of the Course coordinator based on a full statement of objective(s) and an outline of the study to be undertaken.
