    Prerequisites: MTH 141, 142, 241, 306 or equivalent Course Description: Study of problems in climate science using methods of applied mathematics. The course focuses on conceptual models that capture important aspects of Earth's climate system as well as mathematical and statistical techniques for analyzing these models. Topics from climate science include the Earth's energy balance, temperature distribution, ocean circulation patterns, ice caps and glaciation periods, the carbon cycle, and atmospheric convection models. Mathematical and statistical techniques used include dynamical systems and bifurcation theory, Fourier analysis, conservation laws, regression analysis, extreme value theory, Bayesian statistics, and forecasts based on Kalman filtering.
