Teacher Training: Climate Research in the Polar Landscape

Climate changes may involve changes in ice melting, ocean currents and wind systems. Satellites are used to monitor and map such changes. This course will equip you as teacher to use this data and knowledge in the classroom.

Climate change can lead to changes in sea ice, glacier size, permafrost, ocean currents and temperature distribution. Actual indications of climate change can be monitored using satellites.

Using climate data in the classroom

During this course we will use different applications and programs to make simple analyzes and interpretations of satellite images. You will during this course get a better understanding about different geological data that are used to interpret climatic changes in polar regions bot in scale of millions of year and in the recent past. You will also get a better understanding of how geological structures provides indications of the history of climate change through millions of years in the polar regions.

Themes for the teacher training course are: changes in arctic weather and climate, permafrost, ocean currents and sea ice, glaciers, landscape landforms and landscapes. the course will be taught in English and give you 10 ECTS credits.
