Aims/Description: The aim of this course is to develop student understanding of the characteristics and sensitivity of the range of polar and alpine environments. This includes terrestrial, cryospheric and oceanic environments, ranging across tundra, sub-Arctic terrestrial environments, sea-ice, polar oceans, glaciers and ice masses. The course will also demonstrate how the polar environment in particular plays a role in the global earth system, and will develop an understanding in students of the origins of current change in these environments.
