ENVS 340 Biogeochemistry (1)

Biogeochemistry is the exploration of the physical, chemical, and biological processes that govern the exchange of energy and elements between life and the environment. In this course, we will examine the global biogeochemical cycling of carbon, sulfur, phosphorus, and nitrogen. Drawing from the primary literature, we will investigate how biogeochemical cycling has changed over Earth's history and as a result of human activities.
