Title Modelling pollution in the Great Lakes
Description
  • <p>This unit explores a real-world system – the Great Lakes – where mathematical modelling has been used to understand what is happening and to predict what will happen if changes are made. The system concerned is extremely complex but, by keeping things as simple as possible, sufficient information will be extracted to allow a mathematical model of the system to be obtained. </p><p>This unit is an adapted extract from the course <span class="oucontent-linkwithtip"><a class="oucontent-hyperlink" href="http://www3.open.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/course/msxr209.htm">MSXR209 <i>Mathematical modelling</i></a></span>.</p>
  • This unit is the first in the series of five units that introduce the idea of modelling with mathematics. This unit centres on a mathematical model of how pollution levels in the Great Lakes of North America vary over a period of time. It demonstrates that, by keeping the model as simple as possible extremely complex systems can be understood and predicted.<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/nature-environment/the-environment/environmental-science/modelling-pollution-the-great-lakes/content-section-0" /> First published on Wed, 20 Apr 2011 as <a href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/nature-environment/the-environment/environmental-science/modelling-pollution-the-great-lakes/content-section-0">Modelling pollution in the Great Lakes</a>.
