  • Mesoscale Atmospheric DynamicsATOC90007

    Offered:Not offered inYear:2019

    This subject will examine the fundamental dynamics controlling the behaviour of atmospheric processes on the mesoscale, including convection, atmospheric waves, mountain meteorology, and frontal systems. In addition, the two-way interactions between mesoscale and larger scale processes will be di...

  • Climate Variability and Climate ChangeENST90011

    Offered:Not offered inYear:2019

    This subject introduces the fundamental processes and dynamics important for climate variability and climate change in the Australian region using both observations and climate models. There are discussions on the development of regional climate change scenarios using climate model outputs and th...

  • Integrated Management PlansNRMT90032

    Offered:Not offered inYear:2019

    This subject allows the student to see how integrated planning and investment across regions is required to achieve long-term region scale goals. It demonstrates how to move from rhetoric to reality in implementing catchment scale plans in an environment of uncertainty. It will focus on existing ...

  • Climate Change & Agricultural AdaptationENST90014

    Offered:Not offered inYear:2019

    Global Warming is now a reality and the resultant changes in climate will dramatically affect the demographics of the world’s food production in the next half century. This subject will examine the potential impacts of current and projected future changes to the climates of world’s major agricult...

  • Convective Clouds and StormsATOC90011

    Offered:Not offered inYear:2019

    The aim of this subject is to explore processes governing convection in the atmosphere, with a particular emphasis on severe convective storms and tropical cyclones. Specific topics covered include buoyancy, local convection, cellular convection, stability, severe storms - including supercell sto...

  • Contemporary Environmental Issues AENST90022

    Offered:Not offered inYear:2019

    Environmental Sustainability and Behaviour Change In 2014 the special topic for this subject will be behaviour change for sustainability. It is perhaps obvious that many human behaviours impact negatively on our environment. Behavioural change, thus, is pivotal to ensuring a more environmentally...

  • Property EnvironmentsENVS10010

    Offered:Not offered inYear:2019

    This subject introduces students to the various legal, economic and social systems that affect the environment at the level of the individual property. The subject covers theories and practices pertaining to the control, transfer, development and decisions about material goods in the built and na...

  • Digital Design and FabricationENVS20001

    Offered:Not offered inYear:2019

    This subject will serve as an introduction to digital design and workflow from ideas to the making of physical artefacts. It will introduce students to contemporary digital design software, tools and technology with a broader view of using these tools, mediums and techniques for design purposes a...

  • Adapting to Climate ChangeENST90034

    Offered:Not offered inYear:2019

    This subject focuses on climate change adaptation, and in particular its environmental, political, social and policy dimensions. It explores the ways which climate change poses risks to human wellbeing, and the ways these risks can be managed. It draws on examples from Australia and the Asia-Paci...

  • On-ground River Protection & RestorationNRMT90030

    Offered:Not offered inYear:2019

    This subject is concerned with demonstrating a series of principles that apply to the selection, design and implementation of on-ground river and water protection and restoration projects in rural and urban settings. The content will focus at an activity level and at a site scale. Subject materia...
