About GEOL 195 OL2

If you want to understand the science behind climate – what controls it today, how it has changed in the past, and how it may change in the future - this class is for you. In this class, you will learn the science of climate, climate change, and climate prediction. You will understand how Earth’s rocks, oceans, atmosphere and vegetation influence climate and how climate changes naturally. You will appreciate the impact of people who for thousands of years were subtly altering Earth’s climate. Then came the industrial revolution and now human-induced climate changes are easily detectable and wreaking havoc with society - the result of burning of fossil fuels and wholesale land clearance. Using climate models, you’ll look into a warming world predicting the climate of Earth centuries and millennia into the future. Taken for three credits it iis a non-lab science elective fulfilling that distribution requirement with no prerequisites. Taken for four credits, it fulfills the laboratory science requirement.



Dates: July 13 - August 7, 2020; Lecture and Lab combined for course. Students wishing to take the 4-credit version, with lab, should sign up for this course. This section will fulfill the 4 credit natural science requirement with a laboratory. Cross listed with ENVS 195 OL5
