GEOG 60 Earth System Modeling

What will Earth look like in 2100? Scientists use the world’s most sophisticated computer programs—climate models—to answer such questions. This applications-based class introduces the theory and practicalities of process-based modeling for climate science. We will employ a range of models, from 0-dimensional to fully-coupled global-scale Earth System Models. Focusing on climate change, we will learn the potentials and pitfalls of modeling complex systems and how to evaluate models and their societal relevance.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
