[E-PSCI 189. Analytical and Field Methods in Geobiology]

Introduction to geobiological research methods: We will learn low temperature geochemical techniques, light stable isotope mass-spectrometry, and other microbiology methods commonly used in geobiological research. The focus will be on the cycling of biogeochemical elements (O, C, S, and Fe) in marine sediments throughout Earth history. This is a lab-based course that will be complemented with lectures.

Note: Course includes a weekly three-hour lab to be arranged and a field trip. This course fulfills the EPS sub-discipline requirement of Earth History and Geobiology. Likely to be offered in Spring 2021.
