About

This course is about the Earth as a holistic system. Students will be introduced to System thinking. A special focus is on the different spheres – lithosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere and biosphere – and how they interact to create the planet we are living on. In addition, we will look on the global environmental change from an Earth System perspective covering different time scales: past changes during the Holocene, current anthropogenic perturbations and scenarios for the future of Earth.
