GEO6604 Geochemical Techniques

The course provides a theoretical background for the use of geochemical techniques in the analysis of aquatic systems and experience of the practical application of these techniques.


By the end of the course students are able to:

  1. Understand some of the main techniques employed in geochemical analysis

  2. Design and implement field sampling methods that use these techniques

  3. Design and implement laboratory-based protocols for the implementation of analyses

  4. Carry out laboratory analyses in at least one area covered in the course

  5. Present the results of analyses in research paper form 

AG340 Arctic Glaciers and Melt Season Dynamics

The course provides the knowledge of glacier mass balance and climate in Svalbard; Glacier hydrology; Runoff, sediment and solute transfer by glacial meltwater; Arctic glacier/permafrost thermal regimes; Ice dynamics, including calving processes and surging; Biogeochemical processes and glacier ecology.


Upon completing the course students are able to:

  1. Perform fieldwork in an Arctic outdoor environment

  2. Perform hydrological and glacier mass balance monitoring, ground penetrating radar, dye tracing and water/sediment sampling

  3. Perform laboratory analyses of glacial meltwaters, data processing and melt modelling

  4. Organise exploratory-style fieldwork
