[GEOL 245] Earth’s Climate: Past and Future


This course provides an understanding of natural climate variability over Earth’s history, including rates and magnitude of change, and the mechanisms driving these changes. An understanding of past climate states and changes is then used to interpret current anthropogenic climate change and extrapolate future climate scenarios. This class studies past climate using data collected from rocks, sediments, ice sheets, tree rings, and fossils.
