About the course

The course is directed towards the analyses of environmental changes and the understanding of their causes. By using different types of scientific information and data, the aim is that the students should be able to determine when an environmental change has occurred, what was the cause of the change, and what the consequences of this change might be. We will discuss how background or reference conditions as well as natural variability relates to our understanding of environmental changes.
The course is divided into the following modules, which run in parallel:
Module 1. Analyses of environmental change, theoretical module, 7,5 credits
Here we discuss natural variability and environmental change from different time perspectives. This module is divided into several themes that deal with different aspects of environmental change.

Module 2. Analyses of environmental change, projects module, 7,5 credits
This part of the course consists of one or several projects. An important part of the work within these projects is to use relevant scientific information (e.g., literature and analytical data), and to link this to the theoretical part of the course. All mandatory practical parts of the course, e.g., laboratory work and workshops, are also included in this module
