MSCI 563 - Environmental Chemistry


Spring (3) Unger

The fundamental physical, chemical and biological processes controlling the fate of major classes of aquatic contaminants are covered in this course. Topics such as photolysis, biodegradation, sorption and redox chemistry are examined to elucidate the mechanisms controlling chemical degradation and transport. Case studies are used to show how these basic research principals can be integrated and applied to solve real word environmental problems.
