Project in Environmental Biogeochemistry
Biogeochemical cycles of carbon (C), nitrogen (N), phosphorous (P) and other elements are fundamental for life on Earth. Through human activities, these biogeochemical cycles have been altered, 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 understand, address and predict the consequences of human perturbations. In this course, students who have taken Environmental Biogeochemistry (MI8017) will get a chance to further deepen their understanding within one or more of the following topics in an individual project.
