Aqueous Chemistry in the Earth and Ocean
Units: 1.5, Hours: 3-3
What controls the concentrations of aqueous species in the hydrosphere? Principles of chemical equilibrium and kinetics are applied to the major aspects of the global hydrochemical cycle. Investigates reactions and sources and sinks of elements in oxic and anoxic aquatic systems such as rainwater, rivers, lakes, groundwater, estuaries, and oceans; also the application of natural and anthropogenic tracers to geochemical problems within aquatic systems.
Note: Normally offered in alternate years. Students are advised to consult with the department to determine when this is offered.
Prerequisites: 240 and 335 or 430; or third-year Chemistry; or permission of the department.
Undergraduate course in Earth and Ocean Sciences offered by the School of Earth and Ocean Sciences in the Faculty of Science.
