Introduction to the geochemistry of natural waters and the processes that alter their composition. Key principles of aqueous geochemistry and their application to describe the main controls on the chemistry of pristine and polluted soil, surface, and ground water environments. Acids and bases, mineral solubility, carbonate chemistry, chemical speciation, redox reactions, adsorption and ion exchange, and the speciation, mobility, and toxicity of metals. Prerequisites: EPSc 201 and Chem 106 (or AP Chem score of 4); or permission of instructor. SP 2021: Remote instruction; synchronous each meeting (asynchronous options available).
