Throughout the semester we will be talking about various topics related to climate change. Climate change science has many layers, and we will only be able to brush the surface during this course. However, I want you to identify a topic related to climate change that gets you excited because you want to know more! You should find this topic interesting to you. When I find a topic I'm excited about my excitement pushes me to learn more!
Using this topic of interest I would like you to write a literature review about the topic and give a presentation during the final exam period at the end of the semester. These topics can range from the socio-economic implications of sea level rise on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, understanding the intricacies of climate change modeling, or what do we know about the contribution of greenhouse gases in agriculture. You will be expected to use reputable and peer-reviewed references to discuss these topics in your papers.
