courses taught

  • CVEN 4424 - Environmental Organic Chemistry
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018
    Examines the fundamental physical and chemical transformations affecting the fate and transport of organic contaminants in natural and treated waters. Emphasizes quantitative approach to solubility, vapor pressure, air-water exchange, sorption, hydrolysis and redox reactions, and photodegradation. Same as EVEN 4424.
  • CVEN 5404 - Water Chemistry
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019
    Introduces chemical fundamentals governing the chemistry of natural and treated waters. Topics include thermodynamics and kinetics of acid and base reactions, carbonate chemistry, air-water exchange, precipitation, dissolution, complexation, oxidation-reduction, and sorption.
  • EVEN 4100 - Environmental Sampling and Analysis
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019
    Introduces students to techniques for characterization of surface water, subsurface water, soils and sediments, and air and planning of sampling and analysis efforts. Laboratories include stream sampling, drilling, monitoring well installation, water level, slug tests, air sampling.
  • EVEN 4424 - Environmental Organic Chemistry
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018
    Examines the fundamental physical and chemical transformations affecting the fate and transport of organic contaminants in natural and treated waters. Emphasizes quantitative approach to solubility, vapor pressure, air-water exchange, sorption, hydrolysis and redox reactions, and photodegradation. Same as CVEN 4424.
