About the course
This course provides an overview of the principal processes within, and interactions between, the main components of the Earth system, namely the atmo-, bio-, cryo-, hydro-, and lithosphere. The course focuses on how these dynamic interactions result in global-scale changes on Earth's climate and biogeochemical cycles at different times scales, from millions of years to decades.
