Spring 2011 - Environmental Chemistry (ENVIR 450 E)
The goal of this course is to provide in a single quarter a solid introduction to the fundamentals of chemistry in the context of the Earth system as modified by human activity. The chemical concepts are introduced as needed to illuminate and quantify environmental issues such as climate change, air/water quality, energy, etc. The course, designed primarily for students not majoring in the physical sciences, will consist of weekly lectures, demonstrations, homeworks, quiz sections, a midterm exam and a final exam. There is no lab.
