Course Title: Urban Environmental Systems
Course Number: 2414ENV
Course Description: Urban Environmental Systems provides the physical context of urban systems as environments in their own right. With a global increase in the extent of urbanisation, urban areas are not only becoming the dominant ‘habitat’ inhabited by humans, they are also the home of a diverse range of plants and animals. Urban environments, however, are unique among global environments; they are made from hard surfaces which have an overriding influence on their character. Urban systems create their own microclimates and hydrology and the nature of their physical structure makes them highly disconnected in space. This course introduces you to these concepts and explores how urban systems function as a discrete environment.
