EESC 4440 Global Biogeochemical Cycles (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

The interplays between biology, geology and chemistry over geologic time make this planet unique. Biogeochemical cycles are pathways through which important nutrients are between the components of the earth system (i.e., biosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere, and atmosphere). This course will review the Earth's major biogeochemical cycles using different approaches, including isotopic tracers and mathematical models. The perturbation of natural cycles by anthropogenic activity will also be explored.

Instructor(s): Corinne Wong
