"Climate change – a geological perspective is a popular science course about the geological processes which control Earth’s climate and about how the climate has changed throughout Earth’s history. The rapidity of ongoing global warming will be viewed in the context of geological time. Geological climate change solutions (e.g. carbon capture storage) will also be covered in the course. Course participants will learn about some of the latest research on climate which is being done at Stockholm University. The course comprises evening lectures and an excursion to find traces of climate change in the past that are recorded in the sediments and rocks of Sweden.
