Climate Changes of the Past and Future – July 11-13, 2017

Registration fee: $150

We are excited to offer our Climate Changes of the Past and Future course July 11-13, 2017. The course will be taught by Prof. Scott Denning (Atmospheric Science) and will be held on the Foothills Campus of Colorado State University.

Weather, climate, and climate change are important topics in today’s society. This course is open to anyone interested in gaining more knowledge and a better understanding of how our climate works. The course is designed to challenge and inform, and will be very engaging and interactive.

During this 3-day course, we consider the long story of climate changes in the deep past. Then we look in detail at how increasing CO2 and other greenhouse gases are likely to change climate in the 21st Century and beyond. We will consider the fate of anthropogenic CO2, and how it is taken up by dissolving in the ocean and storage in plants and soils on land. Finally, we will look at some of the strategies being developed to mitigate and adapt to modern climate change. Click on the link below to complete your payment for the course.
