ENVS 385 Research in Urban Geochemistry (4)

This research intensive course focuses on the geochemical and field approaches that Earth scientists use to quantify human impact on the urban environment. Students will examine key questions in urban geochemical research, including: How have humans altered global and local biogeochemical cycles? How does urban infrastructure influence geochemistry of soils and natural waters? How are urban areas monitored? Student projects will focus on urban geochemical perturbations in the Salem area and may include collection and analysis of water, soil, and dust samples.
