The Earth's Climate and Climate Change, Introductory Course

  • 7.5 credits

The course describes how the large-scale circulation in the atmosphere and ocean creates the Earth's climate zones and central climate processes: energy transports, radiation balance, greenhouse effect and climate variations. Furthermore the basic outlines for weather forecast models and climate models are presented, as well as scenarios for the future climate. A key subject is the anthropogenic effects on the Earth's climate, mainly through emission of greenhouse gases.

Further course information will appear soon on this page. Until then, information can be found on the department website.
