Environmental monitoring is an essential tool for determining the impacts of various land and water use activities on ecosystems and can become the basis for decision making and resolving of land use conflicts.  In this course, students will learn, through both classroom instruction and hands on field experience, how to plan and prepare for an environmental monitoring field project, including industry standard sampling techniques of soil, water and air.  Emphasis will be placed on the importance of quality assurance in order to accurately reflect the risks and uncertainties associated with various industrial, recreational, and residential development or land use activities.
