Course Code: ES3003
This course is designed to introduce students the principles of chemistry related to geology (therefore, geochemistry) and their applications to understand processes taking place on and within the earth. By the end of the course, students should become familiar with the basic geochemical tools, and be able to use these tools to solve, in a quantitative manner, some geological and environmental problems, for example, measuring geological time, unraveling the continental and oceanic evolutions, and understanding the current climate change.
