CHEM 1900 - Chemistry of Climate Change

This course is designed to provide a introduction to the chemistry of climate change and will provide an understanding of the climate’s influence on society and our influence on the climate. An introduction to the molecules of the atmosphere and how these interact with solar radiation to keep our planet temperate will be provided. Changes in chemical equilibria, due to natural and anthropological causes, leading to an increase in global temperatures will be discussed. Strategies to mitigate climate change will also be covered. Outcomes include the ability to scientifically evaluate effects of climate change and respond to a changing environment.
