GEOL 2950: Ocean, Cryosphere, and Sea Level Change,or IPCC and you can, too!
Interested in finding out how big climate science gets done? This graduate reading and writing seminar will emphasize study of the breakthrough science that has been published since the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Fifth Assessment Report (i.e., accepted for publication since March 15, 2013). Focus will be on the physical science basis: past and future changes in ocean circulation and properties, marine and terrestrial cryosphere, and sea level; evaluation of models and projection methods; detection and attribution; projections of global and regional sea level change; abrupt change and long-term commitment; and extreme water levels. Pre-requisite: permission of instructor required. Enrollment limited to 30.
Background: The seminar is aimed at graduate students. Permission of instructor is required.You can access the syllabus, class calendar, notes, and reading
