Country - Partner Institution - Programs: Netherlands - Utrecht University - 'Utrecht Univ.'
UC Course SubjectEarth and Space Sciences
Number & Suffix: 102
Full UC Title: GEOCHEMICAL CYCLES 
Transcript Title: GEOCHEMICAL CYCLES 
UC QTR Units - Division: 6.0 - Upper Division 
Course Description: Geo-chemical processes are studied along the hydrological cycle, with an emphasis on abio-tic and bio-tic reactions that modify the composition of the atmosphere, pedosphere, and natural waters. Further, attention is given to perturbation of global bio-geochemical cycles by natural processes and human activity, and to climate change issues. Topics covered include: water and energy cycles; chemical transport; atmosphere; greenhouse effect; atmospheric ozone; rainwater composition; atmospheric cycles of S and N; acid rain; chemical weathering; soil and ground waters; rivers; continental denudation; nutrients; lakes; mass balance models; acid lakes; oceans; processes affecting seawater composition; modeling elemental cycles with STELLA; global P and C cycles.
