This course focuses on chemical processes in the Earth's pedosphere (soil surface), hydrosphere and atmosphere. It covers chemical, together with some physical, interactions between air, water and soil, with relevant links to biogeochemical cycles and ecology. It is a knowledge-based course that includes conceptual understanding together with a range of field and laboratory skills. It will allow students to examine and analyse soil, sediment, water, and air samples to determine key environmental parameters, and how to evaluate and present their results in a scientific manner.
