The atmosphere helps to maintain habitable temperatures on our planet's surface, shields life from destructive cosmic and ultraviolet radiation and contains gases such as oxygen and carbon dioxide, which are essential for life. In this course we will work toward an understanding of several important questions. What is in the Earth's atmosphere? How is the atmosphere structured? What is the role of the atmosphere in determining Earth's climate? What are the sources and sinks of the most important gases in the atmosphere? What is the role of photochemistry in atmospheric composition? How has human activity affected the atmosphere? Students will also learn some practical skills essential in the study of atmospheric chemistry, such as working with geochemical box models. Recitation is required.

Offered: Fall Spring Summer
