Learning Outcomes
This course provides an overview of the global change due to natural and anthropogenic factors. It develops the skills needed for conducting research on these topics, with emphasis on the interpretation of qualitative and quantitative observational and model data. Students acquire skills that include in-depth understanding (and writing) scientific papers, oral presentations, and independent research.
General Competences
  • Retrieve, analyse and synthesise data and information, with the use of necessary technologies
  • Adapt to new situations
  • Make decisions
  • Work autonomously
  • Work in teams
  • Respect natural environment
  • Be critical and self-critical
  • Advance free, creative and causative thinking
Course Content (Syllabus)
Atmospheric and oceanic variability and change on a global scale. Large scale oscillations and teleconnections. Mechanisms, magnitude and time scales of changes, natural and anthropogenic. Internal variability and change in the Earth-atmosphere system.
Keywords
