Topics include:

  • Updates on climate change predictions and uncertainties in California

  • Thresholds of significance and significance determinations

Section Notes

This is an online, remote learning course, which consists of content and curriculum that is taught with pre-recorded and real time lectures, in addition to a real-time Q&A session with the instructors. Pre-recorded lectures and live sessions are accessed via our Canvas learning system and Zoom. Details regarding login information will be emailed out prior to the course start date.

This course will be available on Canvas from June 29 - July 1, 2021. A live Zoom lecture and Q&A will be held on Wednesday June 30, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM PDT.

We allow registration through the first morning of the course. It is expected that students review the prerecorded lectures before the live sessions in order to get the most value out of these meetings. We cannot extend course access beyond 11:59 PM on Thursday 7/1, so students pursuing a late enrollment acknowledge that they will have less time to complete the materials. Please contact the course representative with any questions.
