Introduction to Climate Change

This presentation on climate change is divided into two parts: Part 1 explores Earth’s climate system: Earth’s energy balance, glacial and solar cycles, natural variability buy papers (e.g., Niño and Southern Oscillation), and how volcanoes may effect climate. Part 2 delves into anthropogenic climate change: how the atmospheric chemical composition is changing, impacts of climate change that have already been observed, and projections of possible future scenarios.

Presentation: Introduction to Earth's Climate System

Author: N. Gazit, T. Cornelisse

This presentation discusses some of the basic concepts of the climate system by examining Earth's energy balance, glacial cycles, natural variability, and volcanic eruptions.

Presentation: Anthropogenic Climate Change

Author: N. Gazit, T. Cornelisse

This presentation reviews climate change by examining our changing atmosphere, the observed impacts of increased greenhouse gases including sea level and temperature increases, reduction in sea ice, and warming oceans. This presentation also reviews how climate projections are made using models and how these projections might shape our future.
