Environmental Science Techniques
Behind the Science
Remote sensing data captured by Unmanned Aerial Vehicles can be used to study geomorphological and environmental processes.
Gas measurements can be made in the laboratory and the field to analyse the fluxes of greenhouse gasses from land to the atmosphere.
Vegetation can be analysed to determine the concentrations of nutrients or pollutants in plant tissues and assess crop health.
Soils and sediments can be characterised to identify pollutants, assess soil biological health, chemical fertility, physical structure and water release characteristics.
Water can be subjected to a wide range of laboratory chemical analysis to characterise nutrient and pollutant loadings or monitored in-situ using high frequency analysis
