AGSC 5570 - Climate Change (3)

This course will present an overview of the scientific understanding of climate change and role of human activities, including atmospheric processes, greenhouse effect, carbon cycling, physical evidence, impacts, and proposed global actions in response to climate change. Upon completion of the course, students will be able to 1) identify the main physical processes that impact global climate; 2) record and compare facts about historical mean annual global temperatures; 3) collect, organize, display, and interpret data about changes in atmospheric CO2; 4) demonstrate an understanding of the sources of greenhouse gases in terms of natural and human sources; 5) identify the most significant potential impacts of climate change; and 6) demonstrate learning by producing a final project based on the scientific understanding of climate change.
