Terrestrial Chemistry (ENVS*3220)

Code and section: ENVS*3220*01

Term: Fall

Instructor: Susan Glasauer


This course surveys the behaviour of elements in the Earth's surface environments, encompassing soils and saturated (wetland, lake, river) sediments. The course is focused on understanding the factors that control the chemical processes governing soils and freshwater sediments through the reactions of the elements and molecules that they contain. Students will extend their fundamental understanding of chemistry to the materials of the Earth's upper crust.
