Description: This course is an introduction to the field of aquatic geochemistry or hydrogeochemistry as applied to Environmental problems in society. There are generally two types of senior level or graduate level aquatic geochemistry courses, those emphasizing quantifying processes at the microscopic and atomic scales, with an emphasis on laboratory investigations, and those emphasizing processes at the ecosystem level with an emphasis on field investigations. This course is of the latter type. The material covered over the course of the semester will draw upon both chemistry and geology. Co-convened with GLG 575. 3 hrs. lecture, 3 hrs. lab. Letter grade only.
