SC 45500 - Climate Change

(4)
Causes and consequences of climate variability on a variety of timescales will be addressed, with a primary focus on evidence for natural and anthropogenic climate fluctuations in arctic regions. Topics will include structure of the climate system, proposed mechanisms of climate variability, techniques for paleoclimatic reconstruction, and an overview of climate modeling and associated uncertainties. We will use case studies to explore known and projected impacts of climatic changes on Alaskan environments. Emphasis will be placed on the science of climate change, but policy issues will be discussed. Offered Spring.
