The [course_title] explores the physical processes that control Earth’s atmosphere, ocean, and climate. With this course you will be able to analyze how energy is responsible for atmospheric motion,  describe the mechanisms that cause the Earth and atmosphere to interact, balancing heat in the system, predict direction of movement when an object is affected by the Coriolis Effect, compare how temperature and salinity influence movement of water, and more.

Assessment

This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer needs to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.
