Global Geochemical Cycles
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.
ScheduleThis is a preliminary schedule and is subject to continuous change. For this reason, we do not recommend print-outs. At the start of the course, your institution will advise where you can find your schedule during the course.
Course literatureNote that the course literature can be changed up to two months before the start of the course.
