GEOG211-18S1 (C) Semester One 2018

Environmental Processes: Research Practice

15 points
19 Feb 2018 - 24 Jun 2018


This course provides a field and practical based approach to investigating at least one major earth process from an integrated perspective. It is centred on a residential field trip to the Cass Basin Arthurs Pass. The learning is project oriented and includes the development of a project from the initial idea, through the development of the skills and techniques required to conduct the fieldwork and produce the written project report. Assessment is based on a combination of assessed practicals and the field work research project report.

It is highly recommended that this course be taken in conjunction with GEOG201. GEOG201 broadens the nature of this course by developing the theory behind field techniques taught in GEOG211.
