  • Subject status: elective
  • ECTS: 4
  • Semester: IV

The course is primarily aimed for undergraduate students interested in climate change and its impacts. What is the difference between climate change and climate variability? What causes climate change? With these questions in mind the course focuses on the climate change on a range of timescales from paleoclimate, through 20th century and future, covering both global and regional spatial scales. We may cover topics related to impacts, mitigation and adaptation.

The main outcome is related to understanding causes underlying climate change at all spatial and temporal scales, with particular attention to detection and attribution.
