Introduction to concurrent transport of energy and mass in biological and environmental processes. Modes of heat transfer, steady and non-steady state heat conduction, convective heat transfer, radiative heat transfer, and heat transfer with phase change. Introduction to equilibrium, kinetics, and modes of mass transfer, diffusion, dispersion, and convective mass transfer. Includes soil freezing and thawing, energy and mass balances of crops, diffusivities of membranes, animal energy balances, respiration, and photosynthesis.
