CLIM803 Climate Impacts and Adaptation

Global climate change is one of the important issues facing humanity in the 21st century; the ability to mitigate or adapt to projected climate changes depends on developing an integrated perspective on the physical, biological, biogeochemical, socio-economic and cultural factors that influence the climate system. This unit focuses on the impacts of climate change, both those already observed and projections for the 21st century, on components of the Earth System including the physical environment, the marine and terrestrial biosphere, biodiversity, ecosystems goods and services, and human health and well-being. Management and adaptation to climate-change impacts will be highlighted from a multi-disciplinary perspective and the course will also address the social and economic costs of dealing with these impacts.
CLIM803 is available to Masters students, and will be offered for the first time in Semester 2, 2014.
