climate change is coupled directly with changes in the total earth system.
This course will provide an introduction to the earth as an integrated
biogeochemical system. The coupled ocean-atmosphere circulation, the natural
variability of weather and climate, and global biogeochemical cycling of carbon
and essential life elements are presented as important factors in the system.
perturbations of the global system, such as stratospheric ozone depletion by
CFC's, global climate change caused by greenhouse gases and aerosols and
downward trends in global ecosystem 'services' and biotic diversity are
considered in detail. Possible policy responses, both local and global, are then
from the Montreal Protocol and the Kyoto conference and beyond are then
presented with discussion on how to slow global climate change.
For College and
of science, engineering, public policy.
is a popular and frequently invited speaker in short courses on earth/ocean
science for instructors at the K-12 and college levels.
He also provides briefings for business and government leaders on global
climate change. He has extensive
experience as an instructor in interdisciplinary earth science courses from
freshman through graduate level, including courses on Earth System Science,
Environmental Chemistry and Global Biogeochemical Cycles.
He has demonstrated ability to synthesize across disciplinary boundaries
and translate difficult scientific concepts to the appropriate audience level.
His personal research interests span the range from chemistry, atmospheric and
ocean sciences, and astronomy, to policy responses to the challenge of global
climate change. Dr. Gammon is a
Professor of Chemistry, Oceanography, and Atmospheric Sciences at the University
