Course Code: ES7013
This course is designed where students will learn how the climate system works, what caused climate change in the past, and how climate is and will be changed by human activity. Students will learn about the climate system from both theoretical and observational points of view, and they will gain basic mathematical skills in the process. With that students are able to establish a solid understanding on the evolution of past climate, the physical and chemical basis for climate change, and gain awareness of anthropogenic impact on the climate system. At the end of this course, students will be familiar with analytical and mathematical tools to study the climatic state. And finally, to be able to link the theory to the observation data.
