GES 412 - Biogeochemical Cycles and the Global Environment

(3.00)
This course explores the chemistry and cycling of elements across the Earth’s surface and atmosphere, with special emphasis on human-induced changes in biogeochemistry that are driving global warming, ocean acidification, acid rain, ozone depletion, water pollution; and nutrient saturation of freshwater, estuarine and coastal environments. The basic biogeochemical processes will be introduced and then integrated to explain the global cycles of water, carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus and sulfur and how these are changed by human activities.

Course ID: 54553
Consent: No Special Consent Required
