CHEM 203 Environmental Chemistry

3 credits, Fall

Explores topics of inorganic and organic chemistry in order to understand the source, fate, transport, and effect of compounds on the environment. Students will learn about the chemistry that underlies natural processes in the atmosphere, hydrosphere, and lithosphere. The chemical aspects of anthropogenic changes to the environment will also be studied, including energy utilization, acid deposition, air and water pollution, use of herbicides and pesticides, ozone depletion, and waste disposal.

Prerequisite(s): A grade of "C" or better in CHEM 116 and CHEM 116L
