Climate Change

Course Code: ES1007
 
Course Description:
In this course, students learn how the climate system works, what caused climate change in the past, and how climate is and will be changed by human activity. Students learn about the climate system from both theoretical and observational points of view, and gain basic mathematical skills in the process. With this, students are able to establish a solid understanding on the evolution of past climate, the physical and chemical basis for climate change, and gain awareness of anthropogenic impact on the climate system. At the end of this course, students will be familiar with analytical and mathematical tools to study the climatic state and will be able to link theory to observation-based data.
