The University of Alberta, the University of Tromso and the University of the Arctic invite you to explore this four week course that examines the environment and climate of the circumpolar North. This course is the result of an international collaboration and provides you with an insight into our planet's North. Following an overview of regional geography, we will focus on the cryosphere (ice), as well as the atmosphere and ocean of the region. We will learn why the Arctic is cold and ice covered, and how that impacts its climate and ecosystems. We will also consider how the Arctic is connected to the rest of the world. Finally, we will examine present day climate change, the processes driving it, and evidence for it in the Arctic, before looking at the implications in the rapidly evolving North.

An absolutely fantastic course to study with great lecturers giving very interesting lectures that will have a profound effect. on all of our thought processes
It was very interesting but there are still things that I am not clear on. I also hate to think what is going to happen to the north in the coming years.
Very nicely and clearly explained Arcitic Ecology. Congratulations and best wishes to coordinator, presenter and course developers.
