Aquatic Geomicrobiology

Description: (Same as Earth, Planetary, and Space Sciences CM114.) Lecture, three hours; discussion, one hour. Recommended requisite: course M105 or Earth, Planetary, and Space Sciences C107. Fundamental geomicrobiological metabolisms and biogeochemical reactions occurring in aquatic systems, how they impact their environment, and how they interact in complex ecosystems such as methane seeps, hydrothermal vents, coral reefs, microbial mats, or deep biosphere. Metabolisms include different photoautotrophic, heterotrophic, and chemoautotrophic pathways. Interpretation of geochemical profiles and understanding of how microorganisms govern mineralization and element cycling in aquatic systems. Concurrently scheduled with course CM237.
