      Overview

      Ever wondered what causes cyclones, or what’s really happening to the ozone layer?

      Our climate and weather systems influence a lot more than what you decide to wear each morning. In fact, ongoing and unpredictable changes to our climate and weather will greatly challenge how – and where – we live in the future.

      Study Earth’s atmosphere, oceans and land surfaces through this major, and discover how they combine to influence temperatures, rainfall and other weather.

      Learn about climate modelling and prediction, the role of principal wind and ocean current systems, and build your skills in many of the different sciences that play a role in climate and weather.
