Environmental Chemistry -Master of Science (MSc) in Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry 2-years-Trondheim
In the specialisation Environmental Chemistry, research activities are centred on the behaviour of chemical compounds in nature – air, water, soil, organisms and food chains, employing a wide variety of analytical methods including novel automatic monitoring methods.
A focus is on studies in the Arctic, including key issues in marine chemistry and long-distance transported pollutants like mercury and persistant organic pollutants. Another focus is on different aspects of oil pollution. We emphasise projects that involves cooperation with biologists working within the Environmental Toxicology specialisation.
