course expands on and discusses concepts
introduced in inorganic geochemistry (GCH
5405). The course focuses on the interaction of
natural aqueous solutions
with geologic materials in natural
surface and sub-surface environments. Topics
studied include: thermodynamics and chemical
kinetics, carbonate geochemistry,
solid/solution interface chemistry,
acid-base reactions, organic and
biogeochemical reactions, the use of
isotopes in environmental geochemistry.
(Course may be repeated for credit).
