In this course we will explore how the environment is shaped by the elements (carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus and other rock-derived elements) and, in turn, how elements are shaped by life. We will consider these nutrient cycles across freshwater, terrestrial and marine ecosystems. A major theme for this course is the effect of human activity on global biogeochemical cycles and environmental change. The foundations for the course are lectures, readings from the scientific literature, discussions, and independent research projects.

Prerequisites: ENV 201 or CHE 115 or instructor permission
