Have you ever watched in wonder at our gorgeous earth, sea, and sky interacting to provide us with the air we breathe, water we drink, and food we eat? Hear UArizona professors of geosciences, hydrology, and atmospheric sciences discuss how our climate and weather systems evolved and are changing — and how that will affect our relationship with the earth, sea, and sky and with each other. This course will cover the evolution of earth systems that produced the climate of today (Earth with Professor Tierney), the role of the ocean in modulating the climate of today and shaping the climate of the future (Sea with Professor Russell), and what these changes will mean for us, our desert climate, and our weather (Sky with Professor Castro).
Classes will be held Tuesdays, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. MST, Feb. 2, 9, 16, 23 and March 2.
Classes will be delivered online via the Zoom video conferencing platform. The course will be password-protected and only available to enrolled students. All class sessions will be recorded and made available to enrolled students for a limited time to assist those who may not be able to attend the live class times.
