Large-scale Circulations in the Earth's Atmosphere
Course Overview: 

We develop a mechanistic understanding of the climate system and its capacity for variability and change. Topics considered include: global and local energy balances, atmosphere and ocean general circulations, atmosphere - ocean - land coupling, carbon cycling, climate feedbacks and variability, modeling, and anthropogenic climate change. A climate modeling project with the EdGCM is a key component of the course.
