Understanding Climate Change LabSummer Course

Understanding Climate Change
Major Discipline(s)
Environmental Science, Geology, Geography
Location: Copenhagen
Session 1

This course gives you hands-on experience with the scientific process of testing a hypothesis through experiments. You design your own experiments to simulate and explore the physical mechanisms of Earth’s dynamic climate system. An important learning objective is to show independent thinking when investigating the scientific hypotheses. The theory provided in the lectures will be supported by experiments in a well-established lab at the University of Copenhagen.
