Aqueous Geochemistry (310-0-01)
Andrew Darin Jacobson
Technological Institute F285: Mon, Wed, Fri 1:00PM - 1:50PM
Overview of class
Basic principles of aqueous geochemistry applied to geologic and environmental problems. Topics include thermodynamics, kinetics, acids and bases, pH and alkalinity, carbonate equilibria, surface phenomena, redox chemistry, chemical weathering, and numerical modeling.
Recommended Background: At least 1 year of introductory chemistry is required. EARTH 310 draws from Calculus, Thermodynamics, Physical Chemistry, and Differential Equations, but these courses are not strictly required. Problem sets require basic use of Microsoft Excel.
Three 1-hour lectures each week.
