To introduce the physics and
chemistry of transport and mixing of substances in the hydrosphere
by learning to:
- understand the effects of
diffusion, advection, dispersion, and chemical reactions
- apply the governing transport
equation to solve problems with diverse boundary and initial
- evaluate the important
processes affecting fate and transport in a range of problem
- synthesize the analysis tools
developed in the course to solve real-world transport problems
