Description: This course explores climate variability and change over the past two thousand years to contextualize current rates and magnitudes of anthropogenic climate change on Earth. This reading and discussion-focused seminar course will cover paleoclimate archives such as corals, tree rings, and ice cores, as well as climate reconstruction methods, detection and attribution. Students will be provided with an overview of methods and key findings in paleoclimatology and paleoceanography, using high-resolution archives to explore past changes in global climate. Students will read 3-4 scientific papers each week, provide summaries and volunteer to lead discussions surrounding topics of their choosing. Cross-list: EEPS 434.
