The [course_title] course explains tools, data, and ideas related to past climate changes as seen in marine, ice core, and continental records. The course discusses the major Paleoceanographic and paleoclimatic events of the past 2 million. You will also be familiarised with the Quantitative tools such as statistics, factor analysis, time series analysis, simple climatology for interpreting paleoceanographic data. Major topics covered in the course are Oxygen isotope palaeoclimatology, Paleo-ecological temperature estimates, Ice core evidence for climate change, cenozoic paleoceanography and others.
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.
Edukite courses are free to study. To successfully complete a course you must submit all the assignment of the course as part of assessment. Upon successful completion of a course, you can choose to make your achievement formal by obtaining your Certificate at a cost of £49.
Having an Official Edukite Certification is a great way to celebrate and share your success. You can:
