This course is an introduction to the challenges involved in designing spacecraft for observation of Earth and exploration of other planets.

We will study the evidence in the climate record for dramatic changes in the climate system and delve into how these challenge our understanding of climate dynamics.  Case studies will include the dim early sun paradox, the Snowball Earth, Equable Climates, Glacial/Interglacial and Stadial/Inters

Stable isotope systems serve as one of our most powerful tools in reconstructing both Earth History and environmental/climatic change over nearly all timescales.  These isotope systems are driven by basic physical chemical principles that if understood, allow even more to be drawn from core isoto

A comprehensive study of the major carbon-containing gases in the atmosphere (CO2 and CH4), emphasizing biogeochemical processes in the oceans, land and atmosphere that regulate their global abundances, plus the human-controlled processes and multiple feedbacks that perturb them.

Are we at the end of nature? What would it mean if we were? Advanced hunting technologies enabled our ancestors to hunt so efficiently that the human expansion out of Africa drove a wave of extinctions around the globe. No more mammoths. No more moas.

From one’s first thought in the morning (“how hot will it be today?”), to a concern over the future of our climate (“how hot will it be in 2100?”), temperature is a ubiquitous topic in our lives. But what exactly does temperature measure?

The relatively cooler surface temperature that prevailed during the Little Ice Age are important to understand for their historical significance, as a baseline from which to understand modern changes, and as an opportunity to explore how and why the climate varies.

An introduction to the physics that determine our planet’s climate motivated by concerns about human-driven climate change.

This course covers disasters including volcanoes, earthquakes, floods, tsunamis, fires, landslides, hurricanes, famines, pandemic diseases, meteorite impacts, and hurricanes. The course presents basic science, along with detailed case studies of past and present events.

The greatest challenge at the intersection of science, technology, and public policy in the 21st century has arisen because society is getting 80 percent of the massive quantities of energy it needs using fuels and technologies that are disrupting global climate and the array of environmental goo

A comprehensive study of the major carbon-containing gases in the atmosphere (CO2 and CH4), emphasizing biogeochemical processes in the oceans, land and atmosphere that regulate their global abundances, plus the human-controlled processes and multiple feedbacks that perturb them.

Our understanding of Earth has changed radically in the last two centuries: after many years of debate, many major questions have come to be seen as largely answered. It is now accepted that the planet formed over 4.5 billion years ago; that the Earth’s surface is made of rigid segments—called pl

The future is not what it used to be.

Lobbying is often called the 4th branch of government since this multi-billion dollar industry significantly impacts policymaking.

What’s the optimal way to curb carbon emissions? Should we price fossil or subsidize low-carbon energy? What’s the role of solar geoengineering? What should it be? What will it be? The course has two goals: to provide a set of tools to approach these and many other fundamental  climate policy que

Rapid human population growth and even more rapid growth in consumption are driving a transformation of most of Earth’s natural systems including its climate system, its oceans, land cover, biogeochemical cycles, biodiversity, and coastal and fresh water systems. These systems underpin global foo

This course aims to place current and anticipated changes in climate into the context of past events in Earth's history.  Current variations in temperature, precipitation, and sea level are examined in the context of events such as the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum, greening of the Sahara, and

Climate change, urbanization, and conflict mean that global disasters are on the rise.  How should the world respond when disasters force people from their homes?  How can we better help the world’s refugees?  This course examines the past, present, and future of the international humanitarian re

Climate change is one of the most difficult problems facing humanity. A small sample of questions to be asked and answers attempted in this seminar includes the following. How do we analyze and decide what to “do” about climate change?

Growing income inequality, poor or declining educational systems, unequal access to affordable health care and the fear of continuing economic distress are putting stress on political systems worldwide and challenging the credibility of business.

The seminar will provide a historical perspective on the development of the Chinese, Indian and African economies with emphasis on their energy sectors, including analysis of related environmental problems.

Atmospheric radiative transfer, including stellar properties, spectroscopy, gray and real gas calculations, Mie theory and scattering, satellite retrievals, and radiative-convective climate modelling.

Observations and understanding of ocean physics, from local beach waves to the effects of the oceans on global climate.  Topics covered include wave motions such as ocean surface waves, internal waves, tsunamis and tides; currents, including the wind driven circulation, and the Gulf stream; coast

Environmental issues have become increasingly significant in democratic politics and are now a salient issue of global politics, with climate change occupying central stage today.

This course examines future climate change in the context of earth history, and then considers various strategies for what might be done to deal with it.

This course provides an introduction to the modern energy system, from reliance on fossil fuels—coal, oil and natural gas—to the development of the ability to tap the energy contained in the nucleus, energy from wind, solar, and hydroelectric power.

This course explores specific principles from cognitive science that have important implications for instructional approach and curriculum design.

This course will examine future climate change in the context of Earth history, and then consider various strategies for what might be done to deal with it.

Physical and chemical processes determining the composition of the atmosphere and its implications for climate, ecosystems, and human welfare. Construction of atmospheric composition models. Atmospheric transport. Nitrogen, oxygen, and carbon cycles.

Tornadoes, floods, ice storms, hurricanes, droughts, wildfires. Every year, natural disasters kill hundreds of people and cause billions of dollars in damage in the United States alone—and many worry that these hazards are only getting worse. What can states do to better prepare for and respond to natural disasters? Featuring a cadre of remarkable former governors, this Forum will examine how states can work hand-in-hand with local officials, the public, emergency responders, the federal government, non-profits and other key players when disaster strikes. The panelists will explore how leaders can anticipate and train for natural disasters, communicate with citizens in harm’s way, and make both immediate and long-lasting recoveries.
