概述

在UPEI Bachelor of Science in Applied Climate Change and Adaptation 该项目为学生提供了坚实的气候科学基础,并辅以气候变化的相关政策和文化影响课程. 该学位提供强大的综合理论基础课程和高水平的经验和应用学习. 课程旨在培养全面发展的学生,他们拥有高水平的气候变化科学知识,并具备利用气候变化相关技术所需的高度相关技能. 应用气候变化与适应理学学士课程的教师教学重点是在基于队列的学习社区中提供高质量的教学和学生成长. 该项目的毕业生将为从事各种与气候变化相关的职业做好准备, 专业的研究, 或研究生教育.

这个研究项目考察的是“适应气候变化”,它指的是社会或生态系统为限制气候变化的负面影响或利用气候变化提供的机会而做出的调整. 从农民种植更多抗旱作物,到沿海社区评估如何最好地保护其基础设施不受海平面上升的影响,都可以进行适应. Climate change is already impacting societies and ecosystems around the world, 随着全球气温持续上升,许多影响预计将会增加. 减少温室气体排放是避免气候变化最严重影响的必要条件, a certain amount of global warming is inevitable, due to the long-lasting nature of greenhouse gases already in the atmosphere, and to heat already stored in the oceans. Adapting to the changes that are already underway, and preparing for future climate change, can help reduce the risks societies will face from climate change.

第一年和第二年 课程的第一部分将在位于美国伊利诺斯州夏洛特镇的伊利诺斯州立大学校园进行.

三、四年级 课程的第一部分将在加拿大气候变化和适应中心进行. 彼得的,裴.
