Earth and Environmental Science
The long term survival of the planet relies on sustainable management of our natural environment and resources. This major includes a carefully designed combination of earth science and environmental science courses that provide a biophysical basis to decision making in sustainable management. Within the major a student may wish to emphasise climate, water, regolith, mineral wealth, regolith, soil, fire or landscapes, and / or generalise across a number of resources. Methods and techniques for understanding each area of resources are included at appropriate levels.
