EARS 73 Environmental Isotope Geochemistry

This course examines the use of stable, radiogenic and cosmogenic isotopes as tools to study Earth processes, particularly processes that are environmentally important. The theory of isotope principles are introduced followed by their applications in investigating Earth's systems. The main applications include studies of climate change, hydrological processes, biogeochemical cycles, Earth's early environment, origin of life, erosion and mountain building. Labs provide hands on opportunities for students to learn mass spectrometry and isotopic data collection and interpretation.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
