Module 4, Closes Monday, February 11

This module continues with the fate of chemicals: 4A deals with fate of chemicals in the environment, and 4B deals with fate of chemicals in the body, a science called toxicokinetics. In 4A we'll review some basic definitions and go on to an exercise in determining where "your" chemical will wind up: air, water, fish, etc. We'll use Dr. McKay's Level I model, but you will have to do a little digging to get your parameters. In 4C we'll continue to learn about scientific literature. There is a link to the closure module from the last time I taught this class. You might be interested in those comments and questions. Later I will update it with your comments and questions. Finally you will find some information about your class term paper. You should read the information and start thinking about the paper.
