Teaching Climate Models

I teach on a number of the School of Environmental Science's modules, at both undergraduate and MSc level, and I also convene/organise some modules. My lecture notes and powerpoint presentations are made available via the UEA Portal / Blackboard site. All students registered for these modules should have access to the relevant Blackboard module pages.

  • ENV-MA49: Climate change - physical science basis (MSc-level)
    • My contribution:
      • I organise this module and I also teach a number of lectures on topics such as the climate system, causes of climate change, climate models, and the role of the oceans in the climate system.
    • Unit website (for schedule, coursework, etc.):

  • ENV-3A49: Climate change - physical science basis (undergraduate, 300-level)
    • This is co-taught with ENV-MA49 See ENV-MA49 for further details.

  • ENV-3A48: Climatic Change Reconstructions and Projections (undergraduate, 300-level)
    • This module is not running in 2012-13.
    • My contribution:
      • I co-organise this module with Keith Briffa, who is the lead organiser. I also teach a number of lectures on topics such as causes of climate change, simulating climate variations during the last 1000 years, the North Atlantic Oscillation and the Atlantic thermohaline circulation.

  • ENV-3A91: Independent Project
    • My contribution:
      • I organise this module, for all final-year ENV undergraduate students
    • Module website (including project handbook):
      • Projects webpage (NB. this is on the UEA intranet; further information is available on Blackboard but only once students have started their final year.)
