Online Climate Change Courses for Advanced High School Students to Professionals

(Beginning January 2011 and March 2011)

The State University of New York’s College of Environmental Science and Forestry is offering two online courses on climate change. Climate Change Science and Sustainability is a one-credit, six-week online course that introduces participants to climate science, the evidence of modern climate change, and an evaluation of some of the proposed solutions. Climate Change Science and Environmental Meteorology is a three-credit upper level online course that is a more in-depth examination of climate science and climate change through a basic meteorological perspective. Both courses are taught by veteran meteorologist, Dave Eichorn (AMS), and integrate NASA and other web-based climate change media with outside readings. NASA’s spatial and temporal climate change resources are the basis for most learning activities, and enable students to continue their exploration of climate change after completion of a course.

Climate Change Science and Sustainability runs March 21- May 6, and Climate Change Science and Environmental Meteorology runs January 18 – May 11. For more information about the courses and to register, visit: http://www.esf.edu/esfonline.
