Who can take this course?
The course is open to anyone interested in a better understanding of how our climate works. Grade 8 to adult. Course registration includes catered lunch for all three days.
In this 3-day course, we consider the long story of climate changes in the deep past. Then we will look in detail at how increasing CO2 and other greenhouse gases are likely to change climate in the 21st Century and beyond. We will consider the fate of anthropogenic CO2 and how it is taken up by dissolving in the oceans and storage in plants and soils soon land. Finally, we will look at some of the strategies being developed to mitigate and adapt to modern climate change.
