The extension module is aimed at students with a genuine interest in climate science and related topics for their future career in and outside academia. As such it provides an interdisciplinary overview of core concepts and elements of climate change to introduce participants to its multi-faceted and complex nature, and to enhance their ability for interdisciplinary discourse going forward. The module encompasses elements from the physical basics to the economics of mitigating climate change, from sectoral impacts and adaptation to the climate policy landscape.

In covering the interdisciplinary aspects of climate science, the module will draw on the products of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and in particular the recent Special Reports on 1.5°C (SR15), on Land (SRCCL) and on the Ocean and the Cryosphere (SROCC). The IPCC reports will be supplemented by additional literature as applicable.

The module will be held in three two-day blocks plus an additional preparatory meeting. It will be set out in 4h blocks including two presentations, one by the lecturer and one by a participant. The participants can choose a topic of their interest from the list provided below on which they will prepare a 60min presentation plus questions. Background literature will be provided by the lecturer. Depending on the number of participants, each participant is required to give either one presentation and submit a seminar paper on the same topic or give two presentations.

 

Background on the lecturer

Dr. Carl-Friedrich Schleußner is a junior research group leader at the Humboldt University IRI-THESys cluster. A physicist by training, he has worked on a range of interdisciplinary topics around climate change ranging from ocean circulation changes and sea level rise to climate change and armed conflicts and mitigation pathways. His main focus over the recent years has been science in relation to the 1.5°C temperature goal of the Paris Agreement and he has been a contributing author to the recent special report. His research group focusses on barriers to adaptation. Carl-Friedrich Schleußner is also a team leader at the Berlin-based science policy institute Climate Analytics and works as a scientific advisor to small island states.

 

Block 1 The climatological basics of climate change

 

Block 1 Introduction (4h)
