Environmental Science Approved Courses from other departments - Environmental Measurement and Analysis ENVE 3461   Environmental Measurement and Analysis
This course will cover the fundamentals of characterizing and monitoring processes within environmental systems through measurement and analysis. The course will begin with an overview of transducers and the various types of sensors and data acquisition systems typically used in environmental monitoring. Students will learn how to properly measure fluid flow processes and sample for contaminants within surface water and ground water. In addition, the measurement and analysis of contaminants in soil and atmospheric media will be covered. Data presentation and the use of geographical information systems (GIS) and global positioning systems (GPS) will also be covered. Students will gain hands-on experience using environmental monitoring equipment and instrumental methods of analysis during field and laboratory classes. Students taking this class as a core course will be expected to attend a two-day surveying field camp on the Sexton Campus over the first weekend of term.
