Learning outcomes

The changing earth is studied as a complex, dynamic wholeness with special emphasis on the variability and changes of the system and its components on different spatio-temporal scales under human influence - the Anthropocene. In addition to the environmental approach, current understanding of the interplay between the natural environment and societies will be deciphered, including themes such as climate change mitigation/adaptation, development and sustainability.

General description

The course is organized every second year, again in 2015-2016.

The maximum number of students enrolled is limited to 12. Selection (if necessary) is based on an overall evaluation of the student’s performance, plus the relevance of the course topic in student’s personal curriculum.

Course teaching methods include lectures/demonstrations, self-studying (reading lists and other literature), short essays and presentations, group discussions, plus a final essay and presentation.
