About

The course provides knowledge about fundamental biogeochemical processes and global biogeochemical cycles. Key topics are:

  1. The biogeochemical production and consumption of greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide)

  2. The links between biogeochemical processes and global environmental changes (suchas climate warming and eutrophication).

The course adresses biogeochemical cycles in the Earth System as a whole, including atmosphere, biosphere, lithosphere and hydrospehere
