This is a special environmental chemistry Authentic Research Connections (ARC) section of Chemistry 125/126. In it, you will learn environmental chemistry as you perform sampling and analyze for heavy metals and persistent organic pollutants in the waters of Northern Michigan. Your class functions as a mock contract lab for a local watershed council. You will develop sampling strategies, analyze water and sediment quality, and deliver a technical report for your client.
Because this is a field class, you will meet morning and afternoon, five days per week as scheduled by instructors. This allows flexible time for lectures, field trips, lab shifts, sampling and client meetings.
