20 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: This module will involve the study of climate, with the emphasis on climactic forcing factors, observation and modelling of the climate system, and ice-climate links, all on the 'contemporary' timescale (past few to next few centuries). The underpinning geophysics will be presented, but using the minimum of mathematics, in order to gain the fullest understanidng of processes involved. We will also look at societal implications of climate change.
