This class provides a series of Python programming exercises intended to explore the use of numerical modeling in the Earth system and climate sciences. The scientific background for these models is presented in a companion class, Global Warming I: The Science and Modeling of Climate Change. This class assumes that you are new to Python programming (and this is indeed a great way to learn Python!), but that you will be able to pick up an elementary knowledge of Python syntax from another class or from on-line tutorials.

TOP REVIEWS FROM GLOBAL WARMING II: CREATE YOUR OWN MODELS IN PYTHON
Great course, really interesting! The difficulty of the course didn't follow a linear growth, as week 4 was much more difficult than the others.
Great course for those who want to learn a little more about modelling, python and the climate!
I would love some more excercises, more modeling concepts. A great experience after all!
A challenging course that gives a basic insight to the world of climate modelling
