TOP REVIEWS FROM GLOBAL WARMING I: THE SCIENCE AND MODELING OF CLIMATE CHANGE
This course provides me with new insights regarding climate change and its modelling - and how people can adapt and prevent a much worse scenario.
This is an interesting and challenging course but I love it!! Get an idea of how models and programs are used to analyze climate issues.
A great introductory course into Global Warming as well as modelling which gives you a better insight into what is actually happening with our planet. Started another course and it all fits in.
Fantastic content, extremely well structured in bite-sized pieces, and the method of delivery is very engaging.
