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 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. COURSE... [More]

Gravitational Waves – Their Discovery and Significance

This major advance in astronomy was announced with much fanfare in February 2016. What are gravitational waves in everyday terms? Predicted by Einstein in 1915, their eventual confirmation illuminates the structure of spacetime. The mammoth machines used to measure them will be described. By opening a new window on the universe, they will allow fundamental questions to be answered. COURSE OUTLINE Waves – we are surrounded by light, radio and sound, but what are the essential... [More]
