This subject aims to develop students' understandings of the nature of pollution processes and of engineering systems for the reduction of pollution, particularly in receiving waters. Modelling using appropriate software packages such as MUSIC, STORM, QUAL2E and AQUALM-XP is undertaken in the computer laboratory and is also required in the assignments for this subject. The subject also teaches students how to develop their own application-specific, simple computer models for water quality using either spreadsheets or Microsoft VisualBasic, however prior programming experience with VisualBasic is not required for this subject. Pollution management systems are also explained in terms of social and technical requirements, investigation techniques such as monitoring and modelling, and the rationale for design and implementation of remedial measures. Students should gain an appreciation of the integration between pollution prevention and flood protection measures. They will become familiar with commonly used procedures and aware of problems encountered in practice. Hands-on experience with the MUSIC, STORM, QUAL2E and AQUALM-XP computer model will be provided.
