The University of Alberta, the University of Tromso and the University of the Arctic invite you to explore this four week course that examines the environment and climate of the circumpolar North. This course is the result of an international collaboration and provides you with an insight into our planet's North. Following an overview of regional geography, we will focus on the cryosphere (ice), as well as the atmosphere and ocean of the region. We will learn why the Arctic is cold and ice covered, and how that impacts its climate and ecosystems. We will also consider how the Arctic is connected to the rest of the world. Finally, we will examine present day climate change, the processes driving it, and evidence for it in the Arctic, before looking at the implications in the rapidly evolving North.

TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO THE ARCTIC: CLIMATE
Good course, very informative.
Professor was a little stiff, but this is the first MOOC I've ever taken - so maybe that's the way you have to teach.
It was a really interesting course and I learnt something knew as well, which wasn't covered in my University curriculum. I was happy to attend and complete this course from the beginning to the end.
Very good course. No previous Arctic knowledge, and now thanks to this course I can understand things much better. Looking forward to more Arctic related courses. Thank you.
The narrator is a bit hard to listen , but the amount of information delivered is very substantial.
All in all vey good course.
