AES 403/503 Biogeochemistry

Credits: (3-0) 3

The earth system is tightly connected through biogeochemical interactions. This course will present a multi-disciplinary array of intermediate and advanced topics in terrestrial, aquatic, and atmospheric biogeochemistry. Instantaneous to decadal time-scale interactions of carbon, water, and multiple nutrient cycles will be discussed, and a critical survey of the state-of-the-art field, modeling, and remote sensing methods for studying biogeochemical cycles will be presented.

Prerequisites: For AES 403, CHEM 106  or CHEM 112  ; BIOL 151  ; PHYS 111  or PHYS 211/211-A  . For AES 503, graduate standing.
Notes: Students enrolled in AES 503 will be held to a higher standard than those enrolled in AES 403.
