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.
Autumn term 20 | The course will be given on campus, but parts may be given via distance teaching, to ensure that government guidelines are followed. Details specific for this course will be posted later in August.

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
