Wetland Science for Pollution Control
A 2.2 Honours degree or above in a relevant biological sciences subject. Students aged 25 or older will be considered with sufficient relevant work/academic experience. Where English is not the native language/language of instruction: applicants must provide documented verification of IELTS (or equivalent qualification) level 6.0 (with no element below 5.5) or greater.
Taught wetland modules include: wetland classes and biodiversity; wetland hydrology and biogeochemistry; wetland ecosystem services; international wetland field trip; constructed treatment wetlands. Instrumental and environmental analysis: alongside the theoretical and practical design skills needed for the building of constructed treatment wetlands students on this course will learn a variety of instrumental analysis techniques. These will be tailored for constructed wetland engineers and biogeochemists interested in environmental analysis and suitable for those studying a wide variety of aquatic and terrestrial habitats; not just wetlands. The lab and field based techniques covered include: pH, conductivity and redox potential; greenhouse gas (GHG) collection and analysis using a gas chromatograph (GC) and infra red gas analysis (IRGA); cation and anion concentration analysis using ion chromatography (IC); stable isotope analysis with an isotope ratio mass spectrometer (IRMS); modelling for the design of treatment wetlands. Constructed treatment wetland research project: the research project comprises a third of the MSc and is supervised by research active staff with excellent publication record and experience in their field. There is the possibility of working alongside a constructed wetland consultancy partner for part of the project.
