University of Leeds: Discovering Science: Atmospheric Chemistry

* Duration: 2 weeks/ 5 hours per week
* Free online course
* Start date: 19 March 2018

Learn about the role that radiation and greenhouse gases play in our understanding of atmospheric chemistry. As levels of CO2 in the atmosphere increase, you will discover the solutions scientists are exploring to reduce levels. And, discover how missions to other planets and moons in our solar system are revealing extraordinarily diverse atmospheres. Explore how an exponential increase in the discovery of new exoplanets is helping us learn about the evolution of our own atmosphere.

What topics will you cover:

- The chemistry of atmospheric pollution;
- The role that radiation and greenhouse gases play in atmospheric chemistry;
- The role of chemical feedbacks;
- An introduction to the FAGE container;
- The research conducted using the FAGE container to predict climate and air quality;
- Chemical solutions for reducing the amount of Carbon Dioxide in our atmosphere;
- The influence of humans on recent climate change.
