Engineering Sciences 392. Environmental Chemistry

Basic concepts, principles, and applications of environmental chemistry for students in Earth and environmental sciences. We will investigate a variety of environmental chemistry topics relevant for soil environmental systems, including soil mineralogy, water chemistry, redox reactions, precipitation/dissolution, and ion sorption. The principal goal is to explore and apply the fundamental chemical principles to understand Earth processes and solve complex environmental problems.

Note: Cannot be taken for credit by students who have already taken ENG-SCI 264.
Prerequisite: Physical Sciences 1 or permission of the instructor.
