Marine Biogeochemistry
E&ES 341
Fall 2012 not offered

This course will focus on the ocean's role in the global biogeochemical cycling of highly mobile and reactive elements and the impact of humans on these biogeochemical cycles. Topics covered include the chemical composition of seawater gas exchange across the air-sea boundary, the production and destruction of organic matter, the controls and spatial distribution of bio-limiting elements, sediment-water interactions, the role of hydrothermal vents, and seawater pollution. Special emphasis will be placed on new analytical or proxy techniques that allow us to better investigate past, current, or future oceanic conditions.
