Geochemistry in the Field and Laboratory, 7.5 credits

About the education

This course deals with modern methods used for geochemical investigations in the geosciences. You will learn about different methods for sampling and chemical analysis of gases, water, sediment, soil, and rocks. The course puts emphasis on the quantitative analysis of natural samples using field- and laboratory-based methods. We will cover nutrient, redox, and pH chemistry of aquatic environments, and the analysis of gases in the atmosphere, soil, and sediment. We will also conduct molecular organic chemical analyses of soils and sediments. The course consists of lectures, theoretical exercises, laboratory exercises, and fieldwork.

Area of interest: Science and Mathematics

Science and mathematics help us understand how the world around us is connected – from the origin and structure of the universe, to the development and function of humanity and all other organisms on earth.

Scientific knowledge makes it possible to critically examine the credibility of information in different areas of everyday life, society, and the media.

As a scientist or mathematician, you will be attractive on a large job market that covers all parts of society and includes everything from pure technology companies to environment and healthcare, as well as research.
