Modeling Climate Change

The University of Chicago via edX


Bringing together insights from physics, chemistry, biology, earth and atmospheric sciences -- and even some economics -- this course is geared to curious enthusiasts, allowing them to work with real climate data and simulations of the earth’s changing climate.

This eight-week class takes a quantitative approach to the science of global warming and will enable students to understand the greenhouse effect, the planet's carbon cycle, and how burning fossil fuel affects that cycle; and to evaluate the potential severity of humans’ impact on Earth’s climate.
