b. Formulation spécifique pour cette activité des AA du programme
By the end of the LBRTI2102 module, students will be able to:
· Name, describe, explain the theoretical concepts related to the mechanistic approach to analyse and model environmental processes;
· Explain mathematical concepts and use computational tools to model the space-time dynamics of these processes;
· Use these concepts and tools in an operational fashion in order to model the processes that drive realistic environmental systems in the context of an individual project;
· Present a detailed justification of the methodological choices that have been made to analyse the system under study;
· Write a brief report, with a solid discussion based on the modelling results and appropriately illustrated with graphs and charts, using accurate and appropriate scientific vocabulary.
