Weather, Climate, Energy and Society

  • 7.5 credits

This course treats weather, climate and energy use in a sustainable society. With a basis in physical laws the course addresses questions that a future teacher may get from students, such as:

• What drives atmospheric motion and weather?

• How can you determine the temperature of a planet?

• What is a greenhouse gas and why are only some gases greenhouse gases?

• Why is it so difficult to give a simple answer to how much human activities impact our climate?

• What is a climate model?

• How is our environment affected by different ways of harvesting energy?

• How does different types of radiation affect living organisms?

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