The course is an introduction to geochemistry where chemistry is used to understand and explain geological processes.
It can be seen as ‘chemistry for geologists’. The course covers chemical fundamentals, basic concepts of thermodynamics, acid-base equilibrium, redox processes, and introduction to isotopic geochemistry. The focus will be on Earth-Surface low-temperature processes.
Course literatureNote that the course literature can be changed up to two months before the start of the course.
