  • Small Bergs in the Winter Ice Pack


Environmental chemistry is about understanding the movement and reactions of chemicals in the world and how these relate to society.  Our faculty apply this knowledge to technological problems like the provision of clean drinking water; the fate of toxic chemicals in water, soil and food and global problems like climate change and the effects of ice shelf collapse on the chemistry of the oceans.  For more information on these projects see the faculty links below.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
