Physical Geography: Climate Change and its Impacts on the Environment

Programme overview

The aim of the course is to provide increased knowledge of the effects on the environment of observed and future climate change. Considerable significance is attached to the study of the causal connections that can explain climatic variation and change. Model scenarios are used to study global and regional climate change and possible effects on e.g. hydrology, water resources, ecosystems and ecosystem processes, biodiversity, bio-geography, wind power and storm damage. Methods of detecting climate change are considered. Observational data and model scenarios are used in the teaching to train students critical analysis in relation to e.g. representativeness of data material, models assumptions/premises and validation of independent information.
