Elective Course
Fall/Spring semester

NOTE: This lab will not be offered in the spring 2021 semester. It will be offered in fall 2021 and future semesters.

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. 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 will take place in a well-established lab at the University of Copenhagen.
