Applied Environmental Geochemistry

The course deals with geochemical processes in the environment and their role for society.

water running through rocks

We take up anthropogenic changes to soil, water, and sediment. Topics include drinking water, sewage treatment, mine waste, contaminated soil, coastal eutrophication, and atmospheric greenhouse gases. Environmental monitoring data are used for environmental health assessment and practical recommendations for remediation.




Autumn term 20 | Depending on the number of students and current restrictions, the course will either be given on-campus or with lectures via Zoom and exercises on as many occasions as needed to be able to work in smaller groups.

  • Course reports

    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.

    Course evaluation = student's review of the course
    Course report = course leader's reflections about the review
