CLIMATE CHANGE ADAPTATION AND MITIGATION

 L T P C

3003

COURSE OBJECTIVE:
• To impart knowledge on the global warming, the impact of climate change on society and the adaptation and mitigation measures to the students.

UNIT I

INTRODUCTION

9

Atmosphere – weather and Climate - climate parameters – Temperature, Rainfall, Humidity, Wind – Global ocean circulation – El Nino and its effect - Carbon cycle.

UNIT II

ELEMENTS RELATED TO CLIMATE CHANGE

7

Greenh ouse gases - Total carbon dioxide emissions by energy sector – industrial, commercial, transportation, residential – Impacts – air quality, hydrology, green space - Causes of global and regional climate change – Changes in patterns of temperature, precipitation and sea level rise – Greenhouse effect

UNIT III

IMPACTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE

10

Effects of Climate Changes on living things – health effects, malnutrition, human migration, socioeconomic impacts- tourism, industry and business, vulnerability assessment- infrastructure, population and sector – Agriculture, forestry, human health, coastal areas.

UNIT IV

MITIGATING CLIMATE CHANGE

9

IPCC Technical Guidelines for Assessing Climate Change Impact and Adaptation -Identifying adaption options – designing and implementing adaption measures – surface albedo environment- reflective roofing and reflective paving – enhancement of evapotranspiration - tree planting programme – green roofing strategies – energy conservation in buildings – energy efficiencies – carbon sequestration.

UNIT V

ALTERNATE FUELS AND RENEWABLE ENERGY

10

Energy source – coal, natural gas – wind energy, hydropower, solar energy, nuclear energy, geothermal energy – biofuels – Energy policies for a cool future - Energy Audit.

TOTAL: 45 PERIODS

COURSE OUTCOMES: The students completing the course will have
CO1 an insight into carbon cycle, physical basis of the natural greenhouse effect, including the meaning of the term radiative forcing, climate change, global warming and measures to adapt and to mitigate the impacts of climate change
CO2 understanding on the growing scientific consensus established through the IPCC as well as the complexities and uncertainties
CO3 ability to plan climate change mitigation and adaptation projects including the use of alternate fuels and renewable energy
CO4 Gain in-depth knowledge on climate models
CO5 Post process the modeloutputs for climate impact assessment, know about adaptation strategies
