Climate and Meteorology is a discipline concerned with the study of atmosphere phenomena and focusing on climate processes, precipitation, temperature, currents, and electric discharge. It also aims at forecasting these phenomena and the changes or sequence between them. The activity in this field involves the research of climatology in terms of probing, analysing, evaluating and interpreting the meteorological data with the purpose of forecasting the weather and specific climatic conditions in the different geographical areas of the world. It is also preoccupied with the development of new meteorological theories and the improvement of existing ones, with the improvement of meteorological methods, techniques and instruments.
As a meteorologist you can practice your profession in government agencies, private consulting and research services, utilities and radio and television stations. A career in meteorological research can prove to be a very exciting endeavour as it can take the practitioner in some of the most unexplored and unknown places on Earth.
Crop agriculture provides mankind’s increasing population with foods, fibres and fuel - this course provides the knowledge and practical skills for how crops are improved, grown and managed. You will gain a combination of practical skills and academic understanding to develop a critical and creative mindset. You will learn the principles of crop production, the latest advances in plant pathology, integrated pest management and weed control, and ecology.
A Graduate Certificate of Climate Adaption will provide you with the skills and knowledge to allow you to apply the principles of climate adaption across a range of different professions and assess the risks and opportunities that may arise from climate changes. On completion of this certificate, you will be able to demonstrate an in-depth understanding of global climate change as well as scientific knowledge and concepts. You will also be adept at assessing the impact humans have upon the constantly changing climate system.
This programme provides a unique combination of training on the physical, social and policy aspects of climate change and on broader environmental policy. It provides students with a solid foundation in the physical science of climate change, climate change impacts, adaptation to and mitigation of climate change, and with a critical understanding of the policy tools that can be used to promote environmental protection.
This MSc provides a timely and integrated perspective on environmental bioscience, management, politics and regulation as these relate to issues such as sustainable production of food, energy and provision of ecosytem services.
This coursework Masters degree addresses these needs by providing important core studies and flexibility in choice of elective studies that will enhance their skills and knowledge in the broad discipline of environment and sustainability. Adaptation to climate change and sustainability science are emphasised in global and regional contexts in this major.
Delivering global food security is one of the critical challenges of the 21st century. Each nation needs to balance local and delocalised production with imports and environmental and economic impact. The MSc will draw together critical components such as the contribution of climate change, biodiversity, water, soil, land use, labour, nutrition transition and urbanisation.
The University of Arizona Geographic Information Systems Technology (UA GIST) integrates GIScience, cutting-edge GISystems, and geospatial technology, with managment skills for use in government, corporate, non-profit and academic settings.
The Earth Sciences Department at Dartmouth College supports graduate students pursuing research in the fields of environmental biogeochemistry, environmental change in high-latitude/high altitude settings, geobiology, and watershed processes.
Geography has been taught at Memorial since 1946 and was raised to the status of full department in 1960. Our mission statement is to foster a spirit of inquiry about the geography of the world around us through our teaching and research, and to provide our students with the analytical tools needed to explore the questions that arise and the skills with which to communicate their findings.
Carbon management is at the heart of tackling climate change and has rapidly become a central part of the global business environment.
The Master of Science Environment & Geography is an integrative graduate program option for those interested in furthering their academic training in the areas of environmental sciences, including physical geography. The Department of Environment and Geography is one of the most dynamic and eclectic research units at the University of Manitoba. The focus of the graduate program is innovative scholarship that contributes meaningfully to our understanding of how we interact with and can influence the world around us. As a department, we strive to be recognized regionally, nationally, and internationally as a centre for excellence in teaching, research and outreach and in integrating physical, biological and human environmental knowledge. This is reflected in our commitment to graduate students and the successes they continue to achieve.
GPAS offers both thesis and non-thesis options leading to a Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Atmospheric Science. The thesis option requires a minimum of 24 course credits, 6 research credits, a thesis, and an oral examination on the thesis conducted by a committee of four associate members or members of the graduate program. The non-thesis option requires 30 course credits, an expository essay, and the M.S. Final Examination.
