MSCI 524 - Principles of Chemical Oceanography

Spring, even years (3) Canuel Prerequisite(s): Instructor's consent

This course covers in a comprehensive and integrated manner the important factors controlling the chemical composition of seawater. Basic principles of chemical thermodynamics will be applied to the seawater medium and will serve to introduce contemporary, global-scale chemical processes such as the role of the oceans in global climate change. Selected topics include distributions of the bio limiting elements; chemistry of marine sediments; trace metal chemistry; marine organic chemistry; and ocean-atmosphere interactions.
