Environmental Chemistry

7.5 Credits, Course, bachelor's level, K0019K
A basic course in environmental chemistry where you learn to explain how the variation in the values of environmental variables affects the speciation on important substances and thereby their biological impact.

The course is divided into three main parts:

1. The hydrosphere 2. The biosphere and the terrestrial environment 3. The atmosphere
Pollution of the worlds' water resources is treated in the first part, as well as water chemistry and uses. The effects of organic compounds and heavy metals are studied in part two, together with the impact of chemical products in modern society. In the last part, atmospheric chemistry and the effects of anthropogenic emissions on the global climate and air quality are discussed.
Furthermore, a project study focused on a global or local environmental issue and a lab. exercise are included in the course.
