A detailed and really knowledgable course. The course structure and the knowledge shared by Prof. David made learning simple and interesting. The assignments are also very well structured.
Good course! in hindsight i wish i bought the book at the beginning/there were some written summaries/pdfs of the key points.
The slow pace and the simple language helps to comprehend the climate science very effectively. Thanks a lot for that. Use of fundamentals with very little work load per week is fun!
I liked the subject and professor is well prepared and an expert in the field. The mode of delivery is interactive.
