GEOL 562 - Environmental Aqueous Geochemistry

3 Credit Hours
A survey of fundamental geochemical principles as applied to the fate and transport of inorganic and organic constituents in natural waters. Topics include thermodynamics, activity-concentration relations, mineral solubility and stability, chemical speciation and redox state of natural waters, and water-rock-biota interactions. Course will emphasize geochemical modeling to test hypotheses, explore assumptions, approximations, and equilibria in natural geochemical systems.
Credit Restriction: Students cannot receive credit for both 462 and 562.
Recommended Background: General Chemistry, Mathematics (through Calculus), Mineralogy, Sedimentology and Stratigraphy, or consent of instructor.
