Environmental Biogeochemistry, 7.5 credits

About the course

Biogeochemical cycles of carbon (C), nitrogen (N), phosphorous (P) and other elements are fundamental for life on Earth. These biogeochemical cycles have been altered by human activities, resulting in environmental challenges such as global warming and eutrophication. Fundamental understanding of the biogeochemical cycles, and how they are coupled, is vital in order to both understand and mitigate the consequences of human perturbations. We will in this course explore different biogeochemical cycles, focusing on local to regional terrestrial and aquatic systems, and discuss how they interact and are linked to human activities.
