ANT100 Environmental Engineering - An Introduction

Introduces students to the relationship between pollutants and the biosphere, the various sources of air and water pollution and their control in terms of benefits versus costs. Studies cover: an introduction to basic natural life-support cycles and the effects of air and water pollutants upon them; applications of Law of Thermodynamics to environmental principles and environmental crises; the origin, discharge and dispersion of pollutants together with technological and economic factors used to measure their effects and control; noise as a pollutant. A series of laboratory tests is conducted to determine the quality of air, water, noise and sound levels.

ANT101 Hydrology and Meteorology

Enables students to recognise the processes which drive the atmosphere and ocean, and the interaction between the two; and provide them with a solid background in hydrological concepts and methodology. Studies cover: (a) Meteorology - an understanding of the nature of the ocean environment and of physical, chemical and geological phenomena occurring in it; and (b) Hydrology - the hydrologic cycle, elements of meteorology, precipitation and forecasting; evaporation from water surfaces; infiltration; unit hydrographs and the rational runoff equation; flood flows, the Muskingum method.
