COURSE OF INTEREST |  Ecosystems and Climate

Dr. Quinn Thomas is teaching a course titled Ecosystems and Climate, suited for students interested in learning more about climate change.  The course is an exploration into the fundamentals of terrestrial ecosystem and climate interactions. It will challenge students to think about the Earth as a system, climate change, and the role of the biosphere in climate patterns.

The central teaching tool is the incremental development of a simple Earth System model, in the programing language R,  that addresses key mechanisms in ecosystem and climate dynamics. No prior experience in R programing is required, just a desire to learn it quickly through the course.
