Course Description 

Environmental Physics builds on the level I courses, Physics for Environmental Sciences, Chemistry for Environmental Sciences, Mathematics for Environmental Sciences I and Mathematics for Environmental Sciences II. There is a quantitative approach to the physics of the processes of the environment together with a more of an integrated view of the science of the environment. Topics to be covered include energy and the environment, weather and climate, climate change and global warming, radiative forcing and pollution. The delivery of course materials would involve a combination of lectures, practicals, tutorials, and web based materials. Assessments are designed to encourage students to work continuously with the course materials.
