Course

Biogeochemical Processes and Cycles part of Cutting Edge:Complex Systems:Courses
An investigation into the various biogeochemical cycles (C,N,P,S, and metals), the microorganisms and the chemical reactions that take place during theses cycles, the environments in which theses processes occur (e.g., hydrosphere, lithosphere, and atmosphere - specifically wetlands, oceans, estuaries, soils, and sediments), and the various methodologies used to measure these processes. These Earth systems and processes are innately complex in nature, this course aims to support students' understanding of these systems through lecture, literature, and group assignments.
