Ph.D. Course Announcment "Global Elemental Cycles and Environmental Change" (3 credits), 5-9 Nov 2018
The primary purpose of the course is to provide students with an advanced understanding of biogeochemical cycles, their drivers and global change in ecosystems. Detailed knowledge of specific elemental cycles with the transformations and movement of chemical substances will be taught in an integrated perspective. In addition, the emphasis will be on coupling biogeochemical cycles of different elements, the role of microbial drivers and the course will stress the multi-disciplinary nature of environmental change. The course is tailored to enhance the professional competence of Ph.D. students from a range of disciplines, such as physical geography, biology, geology, oceanography and ecology to develop knowledge of processes that effect planet Earth in the past, the present and the future. The course will be an intensive course covering one week. The course includes lectures, student presentations, an excursion and a modeling session.
