ENVIR SC 3O03 CONTAMINANT FATE AND TRANSPORT

Focuses on the primary mechanisms controlling the distribution, transport and fate of contaminants, particularly organic contaminants, throughout the environment with an emphasis aquatic pollution and atmosphere-aquatic interactions. Topics include partitioning processes (dissolution, volatilization, sorption), degradation and contaminant remediation processes (abiotic, biotic) and analytical techniques used to measure concentrations in environmental samples.
