Climate Science

Climate Science studies the past, present and future climate systems and the impact on the physical, biological and human environments. 

If this subject is studied as part of the Science (Honours) degree, students participate in research within the UNSW Climate Change Research Centre (CCRC) - the largest and most research active climate change group in Australia. The CCRC has a particular focus on the controls of global and regional climate and climate variability, the use of coupled climate models in combination with available meteorological observations and the genesis of Australian climate extremes. 

Research in Climate Science spans physical oceanography, atmospheric science, through to carbon futures and the impact of climate change on the environment.
