[pccgrads] Climate Dynamics Winter 2019

UW Program On Climate Change uwpcc at uw.edu
Wed Jan 2 12:04:27 PST 2019


Course: Climate Dynamics (OCEAN 569 / ATM S 591 / ESS 590)

Instructors: Kyle Armour and Gerard Roe

Time and place: TTh 2-3:20pm in JHN 027

Description: This course will examine Earth’s climate dynamics from the
perspective of recent research that has focused on the energy budget.
Topics will include: the processes that control Earth's climatology;
radiative feedbacks and climate sensitivity; timescales of climate response
to forcing; mechanisms of climate variability; oceanic and atmospheric heat
transport from an energy budget perspective; the role of ocean circulation
in climate change; the surface energy budget and hydrologic cycle changes
with global warming; and sources of uncertainty in climate prediction. The
course will explore these topics through a hierarchy of idealized physical
models, as well as their application towards understanding the complex
system dynamics seen in both nature and global climate models.
Prerequisites: familiarity with differential equations; experience with
MATLAB or Python a plus.
