Seasonal Arctic summer ice extent still hard to forecast.

A new study lead by Prof Julienne Stroeve says year-to-year forecasts of the Arctic’s summer ice extent are not yet reliable.

Students may also take up to two half-unit modules (15 credits; excluding GEOL3011), or one whole-unit module (30 credits; excluding GEOL3030, GEOL3042), from the Department's range of third year undergraduate modules. For the full range on offer, please click here.

Students may also take up to two half-unit modules, or one whole-unit module (total 30 credits) outside the Earth Sciences Department. Modules taught in the Geography Department, such as: GEOGG135 Biological Proxies (15 credits); GEOGG030 Natural Hazards, Social Vulnerability and Disaster Risk Management (15 credits) and GEOGG043 Science and Politics of Climate Change (15 credits) may be of interest to environmental geoscientists.

Alternatively, up to 1 course unit of modules from Royal Holloway (University of London), Egham, Surrey may be taken. As these modules are all block-taught, students should beware of clashes with UCL teaching. 0.5 units = 15 credits. Students with an interest in taking courses at Royal Holloway should contact the Earth Sciences Department to check availability of spaces on courses.
