Performing experiments to test a hypothesis is fundamental to science and this lab-based course gives you hands-on experience with designing your own experiments. You simulate and explore the physical mechanisms of Earth’s dynamic climate system through experiments on e.g. ocean circulation, energy balance, greenhouse gases, and ice core and sediment analyses. Experiments take place in the DIS wet lab and at world-renowned research labs such as Physics of Ice Climate and Earth at University of Copenhagen.
