Why learn about the climate?

Climate change is generally defined as a significant variation of average weather conditions such as conditions becoming warmer, wetter, or drier over several decades or more. It’s these longer-term trends that differentiates climate change from natural weather variability.


This workshop provides a comprehensive look at the long-term changes in the earth’s atmosphere, oceans, land surfaces, and cryosphere (frozen water systems).


Discover what caused these changes and what lessons can we learn from the past and apply to the future to help reverse the climate change process.
