This is a first module of three that are being developed and it gives a brief overview of the climate system, greenhouse gases, climate models, current climate change impacts, and future projections.
This course is an introduction to the physics of the climate system and the basic science underpinning discussions of an thropogenic climate change.
This free-of charge e-course will provide the basics of climate change including Climate Change Science, International Legal and Policy Framework, Adaptation, Mitigation and Low Carbon Development, Climate Change Finance and Planning for Climate Change.
This course introduces an individual to different disciplinary perspectives on Climate Change to help you think about how Climate Change affects you as a person, as a member of your local community, as a citizen of your country and as a member of the global community.
This free online course examines (1) the factors responsible for climate change; (2) the biological and sociological consequences of such changes; and (3) the possible engineering, economic, and legal solutions to avoid more extreme perturbations.
This course aims to explain the science of climate change, the risks it poses and the solutions available to reduce those risks.
Find out how climate change will affect us, why we should care about it, and what solutions we can employ.
This course introduces the basics of the climate system, models and predictions, human and natural impacts, mitigate and adaptive responses, and the evolution of climate policy.
The Global Climate Change course covers the causes and consequences of global climate change, exploring the biological, geophysical, and social impact of climate change.
This short module discusses how a changing climate can also lead to changes in extreme weather events on the local scale. The module describes how climate change can have both positive and negative effects, depending on the situation, location, and the vulnerability of the population.
This module is an overview of the different effects climate change produces in different regions of the United States. The module also presents information on how climate scientists use specialized models and statistical techniques to estimate how regional climates are likely to change in the future.
This course provides an understanding of the impacts of weather and climate on public health. It also introduces learners to the public health communication system, informing them about reliable public health support services, tools, and resources available.
This course provides broadcast meteorologists, educators, and the public with an overview of the evolution of our modern urban environment, with a focus on impacts on the watershed, air quality, climate, and local and severe weather events.
Climate Insights 101 is a short course series designed to provide users with an in-depth understanding of climate science and related issues. 101 is produced as a series of modules, each with several animated lessons.
This course views climate change from a variety of perspectives at the intersection of the natural sciences, technology, and the social sciences and humanities.
This course teaches students how the climate system works; what factors cause climate to change across different time scales and how those factors interact; how climate has changed in the past; how scientists use models, observations and theory to make predictions about future climate.
This course will examine climate change issues, current approaches to leadership at the local, national and global level and will support students in developing their own approach to leading change and innovation on climate change in a personal, local or professional context.
This introductory on-line course presents Earth’s climate system and explores the science and politics of global climate change.
This course describes the science of global warming and the forecast for humans’ impact on Earth’s climate. It is intended for an audience without much scientific background but a healthy sense of curiosity.
The first half of the class explains climate physics and how the climate works; the second half shows how human activity and ever-increasing carbon levels disrupt the equilibrium of the environment, creating a very uncertain future for generations to come.
This unit explores the topic of climate change and global warming focusing on areas such as how the Earth’s global mean surface temperature is determined, the natural greenhouse effect, and how this contributes to a balanced global climate and the human impact on the atmosphere.
In these online courses students actually develop real projects in communities that focus on a community-based approach to adapting to climate change, investigate the special challenges in their project and refine the project’s activities to build sustainability and impact into the project.
This Massive Open Online Course contains a snapshot of the most recent scientific evidence and practical actions on what you can do about tackling climate change, a challenge that affects us all.
The four week course brings leading and renowned scientists to provide a synthesis of the most recent scientific evidence and provides an analysis of likely impacts and risks with a focus on developing countries.
This course covers the current science on climate change and its biophysical implications. It is designed for professionals in different disciplines who are confronting the issue of climate change in their work.
These courses cover the essentials of climate change including the science of climate change and variability, associated human impacts and forms of adaptation and mitigation.
