This course is a topics-based approach to the field of geochemistry with emphasis on aqueous systems, both marine and freshwater. Topics include: composition of the earth and oceans; chemical equilibrium; solubility; thermodynamics; oxidation-reduction reactions; organic geochemistry; isotope geochemistry; contaminant geochemistry; applications of geochemistry; consequences of weathering; composition of surface waters; geochemical modeling; and selected areas of interest.
College/Department: College of Arts and Sciences Repeat Status: Not repeatable for credit

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
For additional information, and an up-to-date list of the writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Drexel University Writing Center page
