University of Oxford’s Environmental Programs

Climateeducation.net  is a global program which aims to encourage the sharing of high quality information about climate science, modelling and the interpretation of climate change modelling experiments.

The climateeducation.net program combines climate prediction expertise from the University of Oxford’s climateprediction.net team and the Met Office Hadley Centre’s PRECIS team with the expertise of the University of Oxford’s Department for Continuing Education  in delivering effective online education.

It plans to offer two short online courses. It has already invited applications for Course I. Course I titled, “An Introduction to the Science of Climate and Climate Change”, is a short online course. This course will provide an introduction to climate science and modelling. Through this course, you can develop an understanding of some of the issues surrounding the use of model projections of climate change.

The course is a stand-alone, untutored learning experience that can be taken at the convenience of the user. Climateeducation.net supports an online community of knowledge sharing in regional climate prediction. If you register for the Course I, you will automatically be able to become members of the community.

Course 2: This is a more in-depth look at regional climate in particular, and will focus on the design and application of ensemble regional climate downscaling experiments. The course has not been launched yet. It is scheduled to be available in Spring 2012.

Apply for this course: To register for the course please visit the climateeducation.net website. If you have any questions about this course, you can email to reciprocate@conted.ox.ac.uk.
