Course Description

This advanced seminar seeks to provide an overview of the science of global change and a critical evaluation of the literature through a survey of current scientific debates. We will cover a wide range of issues from topics in radiative forcing, oceans, atmosphere, cryosphere, paleoclimate, biological feedbacks, and impacts. Students will be expected to read papers and lead discussions, write assessments of each climate debate, and prepare a final term paper evaluating the scientific consensus on climate change in the context of the debates we cover.
