Cycles within the atmospheric, hydrospheric, and lithospheric segments of the environment will be considered, such as ozone formation/destruction, photochemical smog, acid rain, the greenhouse effect, dissolved metals, dissolved nutrients, sewage treatment, and soil structure. This course will emphasize the fundamental chemical principles that govern environmental processes. Three-hour lecture. Prerequisites: CHM 27303.
