Past changes in climate

Climate changes in the past Studying past climate is the key to understanding climate changes today and projecting scenarios for climate change in the future. Future climate changes will be …

Records of past changes in climate

In this video you will learn about records of past changes in climate. In particular you will learn about climate archives from marine and ice cores. Topics covered: The past …

Ocean heat uptake

Previously we have gone through the concepts of radiative forcing and climate feedbacks. In order to understand how fast the earth’s temperature responds to a radiative forcing, we need to …

In this video the educators together with a PhD student from the University of Bergen discuss a central questions from this week’s lessons. Questions from all learners – posted through …

Mathematical Expression of Climate feedbacks

In this text we show how we can incorporate feedbacks in simple mathematical formulation of climate change and we will go through an example showing how the climate sensitivity due …

Radiative feedbacks

A climate feedback is an internal climate process that amplifies or dampens the initial climate response to a specific forcing (example: increase in atmospheric water vapor that is triggered by …

Climate Feedbacks

When a radiative forcing is imposed on the climate system, the temperature is not the only thing on earth that will change. In this lecture you will learn about which …
