PART OF THE SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERY AND SUSTAINABILITY FLIGHT PATH

Minor: Climate Studies
(CLST)

Climate is a dynamic and complex component of the Earth system. Societies and nature are adapted to a historical range of climatic variability, but that variability is rapidly changing. Though climate changes on all time scales and for a variety of reasons, for at least the past 100 years humans have had an increasing role in modifying the climate system through changes in the land surface and atmospheric composition. This minor addresses the science of weather and climate, the Earth system, and how societies impact, are impacted by, and adapt to a changing climate.
