Two Day Workshop or 16 Hours Online. To protect human health and the environment, understanding the occurrence of different chemicals and their potential transformations, transport, and fate based on various physical and chemical processes in the environment is paramount. This course is designed as a general introduction to environmental chemistry. This two-day course provides participants with an introduction to chemistry principles and the release, transport, and fate, as well as sampling, analysis, and cleanup of contaminants of concern in soil and groundwater. This course is designed for environmental professionals who require a basic knowledge of environmental chemistry in their work.
This course will focus on a survey of selected chemical industries or processes that release hazardous and non-hazardous chemicals into the environment; fate and transport of chemicals in environmental media; data collection, presentation, and interpretation.
Acids & Bases
Students that complete this course will be able to:
List key chemicals and modes of release associated with selected industries;
Describe the chemical, soil, water, and geological properties which govern the fate and transport of chemicals in environmental media;
List chemical parameter changes associated with aerobic and anaerobic degradation; and
Describe procedures and practices commonly used to ensure the quality of analytical data.
