Our Atmospheric Environment: Air Pollution, Ozone and Climate Change

Air pollution, ozone depletion, and climate change are all consequences of the changing composition of our atmosphere, primarily as a result of human actions. In this course we will learn about the basic science which governs our atmosphere, its weather and climate, as well as the many complex interactions which can amplify climate change. The physics of radiation also underpins how satellites are used to provide invaluable data for both weather forecasting and climate studies.... [More]

Hands-On The Universe

In this hands-on introductory course we will consider some of the exciting concepts of modern astronomy such as the birth and death of stars, the search for life and the mysterious dark matter that permeates the Universe. With the help of a suitable torch and a star map that you will receive, in this practical course you will learn how to find your way around the winter night sky. What can you see in the night sky apart from the Moon and planets and how do you find them? How can... [More]
