你将学到什么

Explore the chemistry behind climate and pollution in Earth’s atmosphere.

Assess the future of living with climate change, the contributing impact humans are making and possible solutions.

Explore how knowledge of chemistry helps us to understand the planets in the solar system.

Assess the impact of current space missions and how these may help us find life on other planets.

课程概况

Learn about the role that radiation and greenhouse gases play in our understanding of atmospheric chemistry. As levels of CO2 in the atmosphere increase, you will discover the solutions scientists are exploring to reduce levels. And, discover how missions to other planets and moons in our solar system are revealing extraordinarily diverse atmospheres. Explore how an exponential increase in the discovery of new exoplanets is helping us learn about the evolution of our own atmosphere.
