Offered: Alternate Spring Semester
Instructors: Professors Peaslee and Hansen
Overview:

The principles of physical and inorganic
chemistry will be applied to geochemical systems of environmental interest. Element recycling and evaluation of anthropogenic perturbations on the geochemistry cycles will be examined with a strong emphasis on aqueous chemistry. Laboratory exercises will emphasize computer modeling and the analyses of natural waters by a variety of techniques. Three lectures and one three-hour laboratory each week. This is a flagged
course for the Environmental Science Minor. Prerequisites: Chemistry 111, 113, 114,
