Global Climate Change

Our planet is in the midst of significant global climate change that has great potential for affecting the way we live. Scientists are observing increases in temperature, changes in the chemistry of the atmosphere and oceans, shifts in water availability and vegetation, and changes in patterns of disease. UA’s College of Science is proud to present seven lectures that will discuss how climate interacts with our biosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere and will offer ways to mitigate global climate changes through technology and policy.
