14.11.2019
Education

The objective of the course is for the students to obtain knowledge and understanding of the greenhouse gasses sources, their physical, chemical and biological interaction and the climate forcing and effects in the Arctic. The students will obtain understanding of the sensitivity of the cryosphere (snow, ice and permafrost) to the climate change and the effects on the living conditions in the Arctic. Furthermore they will gain perception of the most important effects on the ecosystems and climate activated feedback processes and an understanding of how the natural environment changes and how this affect the society.
