This subject covers the major topics of climate science. Fundamental energy and water exchanges are covered for several different climate surface types with a focus on evaporation. Processes at a larger scale are then explored to explain the major influences of climate and weather on the Australian landscape. The subject has no residential school. The final section of the subject builds on this framework so that on completion students will have an in-depth understanding of contemporary climatic variability and climate change processes.
