Environmental Chemistry Minor

Environmental chemistry studies the sources, reactions, transport, effects, and fates of chemical species in natural systems: water, soil, and air. The School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences minor in Environmental Chemistry is aimed at those students interested in an interdisciplinary field that seeks to understand and address environmental problems within the context of chemical systems.
