KTB 504E Credit Lecture
Semester 8
3 3 - -
Course Language English
Course Coordinator Nurgül Çelik Balcı
Course Objectives 1-Understanding of biogeochemical cycles and their interactions at Polar Systems

2-Understanding of the major impact of climate changes on biogeochemical properties of glacial sediments and ocean.

3-Understanding of the major global pathways of bioactive elements and related to them with global climate change
Course Description The aim of the course is to introduce the students to the nature, diversity and metabolic impact of microorganisms on S, C, N and P cycles at low temperature conditions and thus examine the Earth’s biogeochemical cycles at Polar region . The class deals with processes of inorganic and organic chemistry of biologically significant elements and focus on biogeochemical cycling of carbon, sulfur, phosphor, nitrogen and iron in glacial sediments, rivers, the ocean and atmosphere. Interactions between these biogeochemical cycles will be discussed during the class
Course Outcomes M.Sc./Ph.D. students who successfully pass this course gain knowledge, skill and competency in the following subjects;

Impact of possible future Climate changes on Polar Region will be

1-Revealing of impact of increased weathering processes on nutrient cycles
2-Understanding of possible changes on ecological systems and thus on biogeochemical cycles
3-Revealing of impact of increased glacial melting on sediment transportation and deposition and
4-Nutrient cycles and changes in ecosystems
