GEOL 768 - Soils, Wetlands, and Bioremediation

Overview

Course Title

Soils, Wetlands, and Bioremediation

Description

An introduction to wetland science, with an emphasis on the capacities of wetlands and soil systems for biogeochemical remediation of pollutants. The course will begin with an overview of wetland structure, diversity and function, with particular emphasis on biogeochemical mechanisms of nutrient cycling and pollutant uptake and degradation. Engineering, design, and monitoring necessary for wetlands construction and restoration will be covered. Case studies will be examined of uses of wetland for wastewater, heavy meta,l and hydrocarbon treatment in a variety of climate regimes. Scientific, management, policy, and regulatory implications of this approach to pollution control and mitigation will also be explored.This course has an M&T Fee.
