ATM 1020 - Elementary Climatology

[LGSE8] This course presents an introduction to climate science. It is designed primarily for the non-science student and includes a lab. The course uses an interdisciplinary approach to discuss the causes and impacts of global climate. Topics discussed include how all parts of the earth system (sun, ocean, land, and air) work together to create global climate; how climate has changed due to changes in these parts of the planet and, recently, due to human activity; and how human society is changed by climate changes (food availability, energy usage, economic and transportation systems, governmental policies, and individual lifestyles). 

Prerequisites & Notes
The prerequisite is Basic Math competency (MAT 0010 and MAT 0221). There is a lab fee. This course is offered online every odd-numbered summer and odd-numbered spring.

Credits: 4
