This course presents the science behind the mechanisms that
effect global climate change to enable critical analysis of the
potential severity of rapid climate change on the atmosphere, the
oceans and the biosphere. It includes an overview of chemistry,
physics, ecology, the carbon cycle, solar system science, and how
these tools will allow critical analysis of climate model forecasts
and the effects of greenhouse gasses.
Prerequisite: MAT-003 or placement in MAT-128 or
