GEOL 460 - Principles of Geochemistry

4 Credit Hours
A survey of fundamental geochemical principles as applied to sedimentary minerals, organic matter, and natural waters, with focus on conditions of weathering, deposition, diagenesis, and hydrothermal alteration in lacustrine and oceanic environments. Topics include activity-concentration relations, mineral solubility and stability, chemical speciation and redox state of natural waters, organic geochemistry, stable isotopes, and the geochemical signatures of depositional and post environments. Course will emphasize geochemical modeling to test hypotheses, explore assumptions, approximations, and equilibria in natural geochemical systems.

Contact Hour Distribution: 3 hours lecture and one 2-hour tutorial.
Recommended Background: 310 and 340 and Chemistry 130 or consent of instructor.
