Website: Environmental Analysis Laboratory
Environmental Analysis. Introduction to basic analytical techniques commonly used in environmental science, with a focus on aqueous and soil/sediment matrixes. Includes determination of solids, alkalinity and hardness, adsorption isotherms, oxygen content, conductivity, as well as spectrometric and chromatographic techniques and soil metals analysis.
A broad survey of biological, chemical, physical, and geological oceanography with a brief historical overview and consideration of current concepts. There will also be an examination of biogeochemical relationships at macroscales, mesoscales, and microscales in the ocean. Same as EBIO 4220.
Prerequisites: EBIO 1010, EENS 1120/1140, EENS 6090, or approval of instructor
Selected topics on macroevolutionary theories; phylogeny and the fossil records of metazoans; Major events in the history of life; Patterns of biodiversity through geological time; Taphonomy; Paleoecology. Same as EBIO 6130.
Staff: Dr. Nelson
Prerequisites: EENS 2120 and approval of instructor
An in-depth study of the origins of igneous rocks from the standpoint of experimental investigations, thermodynamics, trace elements, radiogenic isotopes, and field investigations. Includes a laboratory.
Prerequisites: EENS 1110/1130 or 1210
Survey of marine plate boundaries, ocean floor morphology, and paleooceanology and sedimentary history of the ocean basins and their margins.
Prerequisite: EENS 3270 or approval of instructor
Quantitative aspects of early sediment diagenesis. The topics examined include: sediment deposition, resuspension, bioturbation and accumulation; redox reactions; diffusion and desorption of dissolved species; and organic matter decomposition and storage. These basic concepts will be used to examine early diagenesis in a range of sedimentary environments.
Prerequisites: EENS 6090, EENS 4090 or elementary biology
The foraminifera, ostracoda, nannofossils, conodonts and other groups of microfossils. Lectures and laboratory.
