Discovering Science: Atmospheric Chemistry (FutureLearn)
What can we learn about Earth, and other planets in and beyond our solar system, by studying their atmospheres? Learn about the role that radiation and greenhouse gases play in our understanding of atmospheric chemistry. As levels of CO2 in the atmosphere increase, you will discover the solutions scientists are exploring to reduce levels. And discover how missions to other planets and moons in our solar system are revealing extraordinarily diverse atmospheres.
