Global Change Course at Iowa State University (title provided or enhanced by cataloger)

Eugene Takle, Michael Taber, Iowa State University, Department of Geologic and Atmospheric Sciences, University of Northern Colorado, Department of Earth Sciences

This website offers a complete course on the topic of global change. The authors have compiled pertinent information in the form of summary information, images, and suggested readings. The topics are subdivided into three blocks. The first block, Climate and Agents of Global Change, sets the foundation for understanding global change through observations of global mean temperature and trends in carbon dioxide. The second block, Models and Measurements of Global Change, focuses on climate modeling, the limitations of models and what we can learn from them. Block three, The Biosphere and Human Component of Global Change, addresses the impact by humans through population, deforestation, and desertification.
