GEOL 462 - 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 GEOL 462 and GEOL 562.
(DE) Prerequisite(s): CHEM 132 *-CHEM 133 * and MATH 132 *, MATH 141 *, MATH 147 *, or MATH 151 *, or consent of instructor.
Recommended Background: GEOL 310 *, and completion of or concurrent enrollment in GEOL 330  or GEOL 340 .
