Introduction to the Arctic: Climate

The University of Alberta, the University of Tromso and the University of the Arctic present a four week course that examines the environment and climate of the circumpolar North. This course is the result of an international collaboration and provides an insight into our planet's North. Following an overview of regional geography, it focusses on the cryosphere (ice), as well as the atmosphere and ocean of the region. 

It expands on why the Arctic is cold and ice covered, and how that impacts its climate and ecosystems. Furthermore, it considers how the Arctic is connected to the rest of the world. Finally, it examines present day climate change, the processes driving it, and evidence for it in the Arctic, before looking at the implications in the rapidly evolving North.
