Fundamentals of aqueous geochemistry as applied to the evolution of natural waters. Principles of chemical equilibrium, activity models for solutes, acid-base chemistry, redox chemistry, mineral solubility, aqueous complexes, ion exchange, and stable isotopes will be covered. The carbonate system, weathering reactions, and redox chemistry are examined in detail. Students learn theory, the basics of analytical techniques, computation methods, and the use of computer programs for speciation, mass balance and reaction path calculations.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: CHEM 1100 or permission of instructor; ERTH 1100 recommended but not required.

When Offered: Spring term odd-numbered years.
