EOS 425

Aqueous Chemistry in the Earth and Ocean

Units: 1.5

Hours: 3-3-0

Controls on 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.


  • Normally offered in alternate years. Students are advised to consult with the department to determine when this is offered.


  • one of EOS 335, EOS 430, 1.5 units of 300- or 400-level CHEM course; or
