GEOS 5500 - Environmental Field Geochemistry


Students in this course will be introduced to a variety of environmental field and laboratory analytical techniques, including field sampling protocols, basic aqueous geochemistry techniques, ion chromatography, and UV/Vis spectrophotometry. Using these techniques, students will design and conduct an assessment of water quality in a local environmental system (e.g., eutrophication or salinization of local lakes, or other contamination of local surface or groundwater systems). Students will present their findings to the local community through a written report and an oral/poster presentation. Students may be expected to travel to a local field site and to work outdoors, including in canoes, under a variety of weather conditions.

Prerequisites & Corequisites: Prerequisites: Either (GEOS 3350 or GEOS 2320); or ENVS 2150, CHEM 1100 and CHEM 1110.

Credits: 3 hours

Notes: Open to Upperclass and Graduate students.
