The objective for this course it to teach the principles of climate and
Earth system modeling to graduate students in the Earth sciences. Specific
topics, listed in the draft schedule below, will be covered each week with a
continuing emphasis on modeling issues and the appropriate use of models for
problem solving. The instruction time will be split between traditional
lecturing, reviewing journal articles, and lecturing on practical use of
computing. The course work will include approximately bi-weekly exercises,
weekly reading, class discussions, and a course project with final
presentation. No exams will be given.
