This class explores the fundamental applications of chemistry to environmental problems in the context of the social, political, economic, and ethical issues surrounding those problems. Students will formulate and test hypotheses by performing simulations at home. By the end of the course, students will be able to demonstrate knowledge of chemical principles of various fundamental environmental phenomena and processes in land, water, and air; describe the practical chemistry in and anthropogenic impact of industrial processes, water purification, waste treatment, energy production, and pollution mitigation strategies; and critically discuss local and global environmental issues based on scientific principles and data.
