This unit introduces students to biogeochemical processes that influence the marine carbon cycle, including its role in the control of atmospheric CO2 concentrations and the influence of CO2 emissions in increasing the acidity of the ocean. The course introduces chemical approaches to the study of phytoplankton, the organisms at the base of the food web in the ocean, including simple numerical models of their productivity and population dynamics. Students will be exposed to fundamental concepts and techniques in marine biogeochemistry.
