Get an introduction to the weather and climate of the UK and beyond, from understanding storms to how to do a weather forecast. Weather is all around us. It affects our lives almost every day – through what we wear, what we eat and what we do. It also affects most industries and leisure activities. In the UK we are well known for talking, and complaining, about the weather. But what brings us such variable weather? What makes it rainy, windy or sometimes even sunny?

¿Sabes por qué hay animales que migran cada año? ¿Cómo saben los campesinos cuando sembrar y cuando cosechar? ¿Sabes qué gobierna el ciclo anual de frio y calor y de lluvias y secas? Las estaciones del año son el fenómeno climático más perceptible por el ser humano y se manifiestan de diferente forma en distintas regiones; por ejemplo cuando es invierno en la mitad del mundo, es verano en la otra mitad. Entender el mecanismo de las estaciones es el primer paso para entender el clima, que afecta a casi todas las actividades humanas.

Find out how climate change will affect us, why we should care about it, and what solutions we can employ. Climate change is the biggest global challenge the human race has ever faced. Our insatiable demand for energy from fossil fuels is changing the atmosphere, and in turn changing our climate. Climate change is already affecting the physical surface of the earth, the environment that provides our life support, our food supply, economy and society. These changes will accelerate over the next few decades
In this subject you will explore the impacts of climate change; why we should care about them, the science that underpins our understanding and how we can fix the problem before it’s too late.

Water is a crucial element in climate and for society. Find out about the latest engineering interventions for water management in rivers, coasts and the urban environment. Water is essential for life on Earth and of crucial importance for society. Water also plays a major role in affecting climate. Its natural cycle, from ocean to atmosphere by evaporation, then by precipitation back to land returning via rivers and aquifers to the oceans, has a decisive impact on regional and global climate patterns.
