This course provides students with the skills to navigate the carbon economy. Students will deepen their understanding of climate change science and apply this knowledge to the challenges of addressing climate change. Students will specifically develop skills to use international standards for greenhouse gas accounting and verification.
This course focuses on the impact of human behavior on air quality-locally, regionally, and globally-by examining Earth’s radiation budget, circulation models, and chemical processing in the atmosphere.
This is the third course in the core curriculum for Environmental Science majors. This course investigates the chemical processing and physical transport within Earth’s atmosphere and hydrosphere, as well as how these systems (and their interactions) have been perturbed by human activities.
