Global Climate Change: Environmental Studies 245

Robert Jacobel, St. Olaf College

This website is the homepage of the St. Olaf interdisciplinary course, Global Climate Change. The course focuses on how and why Earth's climate has changed throughout its history and how it is likely to change in the near future. The course draws from geology, chemistry, meteorology, oceanography, and policy studies. Much of the science involved in this topic is cutting-edge, so quite a bit of the reading will be from scientific journals. Users can follow links to a PDF syllabus and assignments as well as links related to the course.
