Soil Chemistry- How Organic and Inorganic Chemicals React in Soils
Soil Chemistry is the study of soil as a complex mixture of reacting and interacting organic and inorganic chemicals. This course will focus on the study of the basic physical, chemical, mineralogical, and biological properties of a wide variety of soil systems. It will also focus on the study of the fundamental, governing principles of the behavior of a wide range of chemicals (e.g. acids, bases, metals, radionuclides, bulk hydrocarbons, dissolved hydrocarbons, DNAPLs, NAPLs) over a wide range of soil systems.
