Periodizitätjährlich wiederkehrende Veranstaltung
KommentarDer erfolgreiche Abschluss des Bachelor-Kurses Geochemie (651-3400-00L) ist für diesen Kurs Voraussetzung.

KurzbeschreibungThis course will introduce some of the main quantitative methods available for the quantitative treatment of geochemical data, as well as the main modelling tools. Emphasis will both be on conceptual understanding of these methods as well as on their practical application, using key software packages to analyse real geochemical datasets.
LernzielDevelopment of a basic knowledge and understanding of the main tools available for the quantitative analysis of geochemical data.
InhaltThe following approaches will be discussed in detail: major and trace element modelling of magmas, with application to igneous systems; methods and statistics for calculation of isochrons and model ages; reservoir dynamics and one-dimensional modelling of ocean chemistry; modelling speciation in aqueous (hydrothermal, fresh water sea water) fluids.

We will discuss how these methods are applied in a range of Earth Science fields, from cosmochemistry, through mantle and crustal geochemistry, volcanology and igneous petrology, to chemical oceanography.

A special emphasis will be put on dealing with geochemical problems through modeling. Where relevant, software packages will be introduced and applied to real geochemical data.
SkriptSlides of lectures will be available.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesPre-requisite: Geochemistry (651-3400-00L), Isotope Geochemistry and Geochronology (651-3501-00L).
