TOP REVIEWS FROM GLOBAL WARMING I: THE SCIENCE AND MODELING OF CLIMATE CHANGE
Very nice balance of quizzes and interacting with the models. Very clear lectures. I also appreciated that Prof. Archer kept a sharp line between the known and the maybes.
Very good course to understand the connections between temperature, greenhouse gases, water vapor, carbon cylce ...
Thanks, Prof David Archer for teaching us. You may not know us but hope to see you face to face when I visit the US after the coronavirus pandemic.
Excellent course. My understanding of the world and how we are affected by climate has grown tenfold if not more. I recommend this to anyone who has an interest in living on this planet.
