CLES101 HM - Climate Science

Credit(s): 3

Instructor(s): Staff

Offered: Fall

Description: This course will address the physical science that underlies the behavior of our climate, including the roles of the atmosphere, biosphere, cryosphere, and the oceans in creating and maintaining our climate. Along the way, we will investigate the tools that we use to measure and understand our climate, as well as the chemical and physical basis of global climate change, including direct evidence from paleoclimate archives, model projections for future climate conditions, greenhouse gasses, and the carbon cycle.
