Quarter Taken: Spring 2019 Submitted April 23, 2020 Grade Received: A

Overall, this course was extremely rewarding as an environmental science student. I recognized that the knowledge gained from this course will empower those who want to pursue a variety of careers from atmospheric and oceanic research to climate change policy. It is an interdisciplinary course that requires students to draw information learned previously from multiple fields of science and a familiarity with the IPCC and their reports.

The course is mainly project based (70% of your grade) in which you can work in a group or alone. You have free range over the choice of your topic and the final 2-3 weeks of the course are just presentations from your classmates in which discussion and questions are highly encouraged from the class.

20% of your grade comes from a fairly difficult "Quiz" at the end. The students' mastery of the content varied greatly, but if you make an effort to attend OH, ask questions from the TA and Neelin, and study in groups, you'll be alright.

Another 5% comes from 3 python labs. The TA helps a lot with these and no prior experience is required; however, this might change.

Neelin is a very engaging lecturer with a good sense of humor that he mixes in here and there. He truly cares about his students' learning. I could not recommend this class enough for those who are passionate about 1. the physical science of climate change 2. impacts and vulnerabilities OR 3. how we can solve the climate crisis.
