Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2014-2015.

A field-oriented biogeochemistry course held on the island of Hawaii. Field, class, and laboratory work focus on how landscape age and climate strongly control biogeochemical cycling and ecosystem development in Hawaii, and on carbon cycling at short and long time scales. Other topics include weathering processes, succession of ecosystems, evolution of nutrient cycles, impacts of invasive species, and volcanic gas fluxes. The course is structured around field projects, carried out both as groups and individually.
