Geochemistry I

Bachelor's level | 7.5 credits | Course code: GVG240

The course is not given as a stand-alone course this academic year, but can be included in the program/course package. For information contact the department.

About the Course

The course is an introduction to geochemistry. The origins of elements and planets, geochemical classification, minerals and phase diagrams, isotopes and geochemical cycles are covered in lectures. Practicals and tutorials deal with instrumental analysis and calculations using spreadsheets. Together with a literature assignment, work submitted during the course counts for half of the course mark, the other half from a test. Students who complete the course will have a basic competence in geochemistry that is needed to follow advanced courses and to work as a geoscientist.
