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.

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.
An absolutely fantastic course to study with great lecturers giving very interesting lectures that will have a profound effect. on all of our thought processes
This course has the basic to understand different process and aspects about the Arctic and glaciers. I really enjoyed it!
I liked the structure of course reading first and then sporadic quizzes through the videos - it ensured we were still learning as we watched.
