QMS units are designed for postgraduate students with a strong background in quantitative analysis, mathematics, physics and chemistry.
This unit covers the concepts and techniques used to make formal comparison of alternative options for management of marine systems and resources. As there are generally several ways to model a given system and different approaches to specific management issues in selecting an 'optimal' management solution, it is important to use a systematic approach to compare alternative management strategies, including assessing strengths and weaknesses.
