This subject explores the world of water management on a drying planet. In this subject you will take the journey of water - how it began, and its availability today in light of global warming and urbanisation. You will see that the natural environment is reaching a threshold, and the impact that has for us and the water supplies that we rely on. We will answer the questions -what are organisations and policy makers doing to secure our water future? How is society working together towards climate resilience?

Learn how to measure and monitor the Earth’s water and ice masses to deepen your understanding of global change. Global warming. Rising sea levels. Droughts. Flooding. The melting of the polar ice caps. In this energy and earth science course, you will learn how continental water and ice masses are measured and monitored through remote sensing. You will learn how water and mass transport can be traced, and how this relates to the Earth‘s complex system. We will also discuss global change and its indicators, and why experts have clear evidence that this change is actually taking place. By the end of this course, you will understand the importance of preserving the planet and observing the Earth’s oceans.
