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.
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.
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.
I liked the subject and professor is well prepared and an expert in the field. The mode of delivery is interactive.
