NKEB14011U  Introduction to Environmental Chemistry - (e-learning version)

Volume 2015/2016
Content

To introduce the students to the subject of envronmental chemistry; e.g. the Earth, the spheres, the chemstry, the elemental cycles, industry, ebergy and climate. The give the students ability to think about environmental issues.

Learning Outcome

Knowledge: Chemistry and environmental chemistry within Earth and Biota, Atmosphere, Hydrosphere, Lithosphere, Element Cycles, Industry and Energy, and Climate

Skills: Analyze environmental issues using chemical reactions and chemical concepts concerning biogenic and anthropogenic compounds in the spheres (Atmosphere, Hydrosphere, Lithosphere and the Biosphere).

Competencies: Be able to discribe, discuss and use concepts and terminology studied in the 7 e-learning modules: Earth and Biota, Atmosphere, Hydrosphere, Lithosphere, Element Cycles, Industry and Energy, and Climate
