ATOC 4200 - Biogeochemical Oceanography uri icon



  • Provides a large-scale synthesis of the processes impacting ocean biogeochemistry. Transforms theoretical understanding into real-world applications using oceanographic data and models. Topics include: chemical composition, biological nutrient utilization and productivity, air-sea gas exchange, carbonate chemistry, ocean acidification, ocean deoxygenation, iron fertilization, biogeochemical climate feedbacks and more. Recommended prerequisites: one semester of calculus and one semester of chemistry. Same as ATOC 5200.
