The course provides knowledge on global geochemical cycles, including the atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere and Earth’s interior.
It also gives an introduction to the evolution of Earth’s chemistry and provides an overview of geochemical processes, fluxes and feedbacks. Focus will be placed on the interaction between Earth’s different components to explain how global geochemical cycles interact and regulate the composition of the atmosphere and the oceans. The course also discusses the impact of humans on global cycles.
Course period Autumn 2021: Monday November 1–Wednesday December 1 (incorrect study period in the right column).
Autumn term 21 | Depending on the number of students and current restrictions, the course will either be given "as usual" or with lectures via Zoom and exercises on as many occasions as needed to be able to work in smaller groups.

Course evaluations allow the possibility to affect and take responsibility for your own learning and gives important information for our work with pedagogical development.
It's important that all students complete the course evaluations after each course, it gives the Department the opportunity to improve the courses' quality.
The course evaluation is composed of a number of questions and specific questions for each course. If you, as a student, want to contribute with more course specific questions you may send them to email@example.com.
If you haven't received the course evaluation for your finished course, or if you have other questions regarding course evaluations at IGV please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Course evaluation = student's review of the course
Course report = course leader's reflections about the review
