- design an environmental monitoring relevant programme
- perform statistical analyses of environmental data
- use mathematical modelling as a tool for analysis and interpretation of environmental data
- account for strengths and weaknesses of different ways to analyse data.

Course content

The course contents consists of adequate design of environmental monitoring programmes for retrieving the factual bases that are needed in environmental work. The course also includes methods to analyse and present the data that comprise the results of the environmental monitoring.

Teaching and working methods

This course utilises work in groups, lectures, seminars, workshops and laboratory sessions. Additional resource sessions may be organised in the course. The students should also study independently. Language instruction: English 

Examination

The course is examined through individual written work. Detailed information about the examination can be found in the courses study guide.

If the LiU coordinator for students with disabilities has granted a student the right to an adapted examination for a written examination in an examination hall, the student has the right to it. If the coordinator has instead recommended for the student an adapted examination or alternative form of examination, the examiner may grant this if the examiner assesses that it is possible, based on consideration of the course objectives.

Students failing an exam covering either the entire course or part of the course twice are entitled to have a new examiner appointed for the reexamination.

Students who have passed an examination may not retake it in order to improve their grades.

Grades

Three-grade scale, U, G, VG
