Synopsis: Various technologies that can be employed to assist in assessing, minimising and remediating the environmental impacts of people on the environment will be considered. A wide range of these technologies is available, spanning areas of impact including atmospheric pollution, hydrologic disturbance and contamination (of both surface and groundwaters), and soil contamination. Students will become familiar with some of these technologies, emphasizing both strengths and limitations of each. They will also be provided with first-hand experience of technological approaches to impact management, through field visits to sites where particular technologies have been implemented.
