Skip to 0 minutes and 6 seconds My name is Dr. Julia Lehman. I’m a University Academic Fellow in the School of Chemistry at the University of Leeds. This course is a journey, investigating the chemical composition of planetary atmospheres. We will start the course by asking, what is an atmosphere? And then explore how past and current research helps us understand other planetary atmospheres. And then look into space and start exploring the possibility of life existing beyond our planet. This course is intended for students at the school level. But is also aimed at teachers who want to make their teaching exciting with this new research about this fascinating topic.
Skip to 0 minutes and 47 seconds This is an introductory course, which will also be of interest to learners of all ages that want to gain an understanding of other planetary atmospheres. This is a unique course, and it is one of the few exploring the exciting topic of planetary atmospheres from a chemistry point of view. By the end of this course, you will have a basic understanding of planetary atmospheres, be able to critically research and analyse material about the composition of planetary atmospheres, and be able to write about your scientific findings relating to the topic of atmospheric chemistry or the chemical composition of planetary atmospheres. Join this course and find out about the extraordinary planets in our universe.
