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.
