1.080 Environmental Chemistry
Covers basic environmental chemistry with a focus on understanding the principles governing the function of both natural systems and systems perturbed or engineered by humans. Emphasizes the key processes that act on chemical species in the atmosphere, natural waters, soils and sediments, allowing for the prediction of chemical concentrations and fates. Topics include acid-base chemistry, metal complexation, mineral dissolution and precipitation, oxidation/reduction reactions, photolysis, phase partitioning including bioaccumulation, and radiochemistry. Concurrent enrollment in 1.083 and 1.107 recommended.
