Environmental assessment

In this course, we will study some practical aspects regarding environmental assessment of selected habitat types. The course takes a holistic approach to environmental assessment, including topics such as experimental design and monitoring to data analysis. Experimental design will focus on sampling techniques in soil and water, applied statistics and assessment underpinned by national and international laws and policies. In addition to environmental assessment, we will also demonstrate how geostatistics is used for describing soil heterogeneity, for designing robust monitoring programmes and subsequently in the analysis of soil-based assessment data. A number of examples and case studies will be used to illustrate how environmental assessment is used to study human-induced effects of inter alia eutrophication and acidification.
