PHSC 13400: Global Warming: Understanding the Forecast
PHSC 13400: Global Warming: Understanding the Forecast (Fall 2009, UChicago). Taught by Professor David Archer, this course presents the science behind the forecast of global warming to enable the student to evaluate the likelihood and potential severity of anthropogenic climate change in the coming centuries. It includes an overview of the physics of the greenhouse effect, including comparisons with Venus and Mars; an overview of the carbon cycle in its role as a global thermostat; predictions and reliability of climate model forecasts of the greenhouse world.
