Environmental Science (ENSC) - Biogeochemistry of the Anthropocene

ENSC 5516  Biogeochemistry of the Anthropocene


GEOG 4516, BIOL 4516, CHEM 4516




Students explore the cycling, transport, and fate of nutrients, carbon, and contaminants (e.g., mercury) in surface and groundwater systems. Students focus on nutrient and carbon cycles and the interconnected nature of physical and chemical processes in natural waters, as well as how wetlands, landscape disturbances, and climate change impact water quality.

This course can be taught together with BIOL/CHEM/GEOG 4516 Biogeochemistry of the Anthropocene, with undergraduate students being subject to different assignments and evaluation criteria than graduate students.
