Geochemical Modelling

  • 7.5 credits

The course gives an introduction to different modelling tools, and thereafter proceeds to introduce basic methods in geochemical modelling such as equilibrium calculations and inverse modelling (from solution chemistry determining weathering of minerals and reaction), speciation, box models, and introduces modelling of reaction and transport.

Further course information will appear soon on this page. Until then, information can be found on the department website.

    Assessment

    Knowledge assessment and examination are in the form of written examinations and project reports.

    Grades will be set according to a seven-point scale related to the learning objectives of the course:
    A = Excellent
    B = Very good
    C = Good
    D = Satisfactory
    E = Adequate
    Fx = Fail, some additional work required
    F = Fail, much additional work required

    The grading criteria will be distributed at the beginning of the course. d. In order to pass the course, students must receive the minimum passing grade E on all course units and participate in all mandatory instruction.

    Students who receive a failing grade on a regular examination are allowed to retake the examination as long as the course is still provided. The number of examination opportunities is not limited. Other mandatory course elements are equated with examinations. A student who has received a passing grade on an examination may not retake the examination to attain a higher grade. A student who has failed the same examination twice is entitled to have another examiner appointed, unless there are special reasons to the contrary. Such requests should be made to the department board. The course has at least two examination sessions per academic year the year of tuition given. Intermediate years are given at least one examination.

    There is no facility to improve the grade Fx to a pass grade in this course.
