Monitoring Atmospheric Composition

EUMETSAT via FutureLearn

This course may be unavailable.


Explore the technologies we use to observe, measure and forecast the atmosphere

The composition of our planet’s atmosphere is a delicate balance - even the slightest changes could be catastrophic.

Join EUMETSAT and the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service/ECMWF to discover the space, air and ground-based technologies we use to monitor and forecast the atmosphere.

You’ll explore the critical threats affecting the atmosphere and its composition - and how these affect human health, climate change and the ecosystem.

You’ll also see how this all informs policy and international agreements, plus the extensive work needed to predict change and maintain air quality.

This course would suit policy / decision makers, journalists, educators, business owners, and students. It may also appeal to a curious, general interest audience, or professionals who possess some experience in the subject.
