How acidic is the rain if atmospheric CO2 concentration doubles? part of Hydrogeology:Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
Students use basic aqueous geochemistry knowledge to investigate controls of the atmospheric carbon dioxide level on pH values of the wet precipitation at standard conditions (25 oC, 1 atmospheric pressure).

How to read elemental soil profiles to investigate the biogeochemical processes in Critical Zone? part of Hydrogeology:Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
In this exercise, students use elemental chemistry data in a soil profile to explore major biogeochemical processes that dominate in critical zone. Data will be provided, and students calculate and graph the mass ...
