Advisory Prerequisites:
Introductory chemistry.
BS:
This course counts toward the 60 credits of math/science required for a Bachelor of Science degree.
Repeatability:
May not be repeated for credit.
Primary Instructor:

This course deals with the geochemistry of our environment. It focuses on the geochemistry of the lithosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere and the ways in which they affect the biosphere. In each of these compartments, we will learn about geochemical principles such as chemical equilibria and kinetics, pH, redox reactions, and photochemistry, to name a few. In addition, applications of these principles to present-day problems in environmental geochemistry and remediation efforts are discussed.

Course Requirements:

There will be homework assignments throughout the semester, a midterm and a final, and a proposal-style term project on remediating an environmental problem

Class Format:

The class is based on lectures in an interactive setting with occasional in-class tasks.
