In Fall 2018, the South Central Climate Adaptation Science Center at the University of Oklahoma will offer four short courses that will provide an integrative understanding of the components of the climate system. We will discuss the impacts of a changing climate on multiple sectors such as the economy, policy, ecosystems, and indigenous populations. In addition, we will discuss how managers can adapt to these changes.
The courses are free and online, so anyone from anywhere may participate! You will have the opportunity to learn from climate experts at OU and our partner institutions. Upon successful completion of a short course, you will receive a personalized certificate.
