2017 Australian Groundwater School & Field Trip – Adelaide

April 3 @ 8:00 am - April 7 @ 5:00 pm

Introducing hydrogeology, assessment methods, modelling, managed aquifer recharge, management, governance and more, the course encompasses the fundamentals of groundwater. We have expanded our School in Adelaide to include a one-day field trip – bringing the course to a full five days of groundwater learning. Delegates have the opportunity to get out of the classroom and put theory into practice, visiting sites such as Kingston Park spring, the Willunga Embayment, and Aldinga Scrub, where geology, groundwater dependence, seawater intrusion and ecohydrology will be discussed. The field trip will include a networking lunch and drinks at a winery at the end of the day.

SCI17015 – CSARM Module C & D: Assessment of Contaminants of Concern

June 14 @ 8:00 am - June 16 @ 5:00 pm
UTS – Broadway (Science), CB04.05.430 - Building 4, Level 5, Room 430 745 Harris Street (corner of Thomas Street)
Ultimo, NSW 2007 Australia
+ Google Map

The goal of contaminated land management and site auditing is to ensure the protection of human health and the environment. The assessment of likely harm posed by COCs (Contaminants of Concern) requires a deep understanding of their properties, behaviour in various media and toxicities to humans and other biota.

This module deals with the properties of COCs, the factors affecting their fate and transport in the environment and the basis of their toxicities to living organisms. It also addresses the on- and off-site effects of contaminants, the appropriate use of laboratory analyses and toxicological results required for defensible reporting of impacts.

National Symposium of Recycled Organics

June 15 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm

This symposium is devoted to the development of scientific knowledge, and application in the fields of interdisciplinary approaches (Agriculture, Industry, Urban,...) to promote better understanding of beneficial use of recycled organics in our environments. The meeting will consist of main five themes led by keynote speakers who are experts in their field, which will integrate these disciplines, and will be inclusive of a wide range of research environments. We believe that NSRO will deliver an excellent program and a great opportunity for students, farmers, and academic, governmental, agricultural and industrial researchers to interact with colleagues and friends before, during and after the symposium. Please mark your diaries now and register through this link!

SCI17016 – CSARM Module E: Risk-based Assessment

September 13 @ 8:00 am - September 15 @ 5:00 pm
UTS – Broadway (Science), CB04.05.430 - Building 4, Level 5, Room 430 745 Harris Street (corner of Thomas Street)
Ultimo, NSW 2007 Australia
+ Google Map

The goal of contaminated land management and site auditing is to ensure the protection of human health and the environment. The risk assessment approach is now increasingly used for the development of new guidelines for water, sediment and soil. This module examines the concepts underlying environmental risk assessment (ERA) methods in site assessment and the application of ERA in site evaluation, remediation and management. It considers the application of major guidelines for ecological media quality in use in NSW and elsewhere in Australia, and addresses the methodology of human health risk assessment that is the integral part of contaminated site assessment and management.

SCI17017 – CSARM Module F: Remediation Principles & Closure

November 8 @ 9:00 am - November 10 @ 5:00 pm
UTS – Broadway (Science), CB04.05.430 - Building 4, Level 5, Room 430 745 Harris Street (corner of Thomas Street)

The goal of contaminated land management and site auditing is to ensure the protection of human health and the health of the environment in which we live. The aims of this module are to consider the principles and choices of appropriate site remediation strategies, and where required, developing a remediation action plan (RAP). New developments in sustainable remediation practices will be discussed as will that of community engagement. The module also addresses the roles of environmental consultants and site auditors in remediation and closure and the importance of developing and practising elements of defensible reporting at all stages of contaminated site assessment, remediation and management.
