Environmental Geochemistry (GEOL-1515):
This course explores the complex interactions of Earth’s atmospheric, water, and life systems that determine the chemical characteristics of the environment. The course examines the distribution, cycling, and transport of chemical compounds in the atmosphere, hydrosphere, and terrestrial environment on local and global scales. Energy sources, production, and impacts to Earth's geochemistry are also explored.
Watershed Hydrology and Biogeochemistry (GEOL-3953):
Understanding the science of watersheds is critical to improving water and ecosystem quality. This course will examine surface water hydrology, biogeochemistry, and management of watersheds from an interdisciplinary perspective with a focus on how elemental fluxes are exchanged through atmospheric-terrestrial-aquatic interactions.
Catchment Science (GEOL-3951):
An graduate seminar for those interested in catchment science, hydrology, and biogeochemistry. The format of the course will vary each semester dependent on interests of those enrolled in the course and current research directions. The course will generally include critical reading and discussion of journal articles, presentation of laboratory and field results, and manuscript preparation. Offered every semester in conjunction with Dr. Dan Bain.
Stable Isotope Geochemistry (GEOL-2525):
This course provides an introduction to stable isotope systematics of light elements (hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and sulfur), principles of mass spectrometry, and applications for environmental systems.
