Geospatial data for climate change

This course focuses on the science behind the challenges facing our planet’s environment. Students will be introduced how to combine geospatial data with biology, chemistry, physics, earth science and human geography to address climate challenges such as flooding, permafrost thawing, drought and forest fires, peatland degradation, rising sea levels and coastal change, and changing economic opportunities in climate sensitive sectors. This course aims to provide students with knowledge of basic science of climate change and the potential applications of geospatial data in supporting climate change mitigation and adaptation. The role of human beings on climate change will be critically examined based on geospatial data.

Assessment: 100% coursework
