AMS Climate Studies Collage

AMS Climate Studies is an introductory college-level course developed by the American Meteorological Society for implementation at undergraduate institutions nationwide. The course places students in a dynamic and highly motivational educational environment where they investigate Earth's climate system using real-world environmental data.

The AMS Climate Studies course package consists of an eTextbook, Investigations Manual, RealTime Climate Portal (course website), and course management system-compatible files. Instructors can use these resources in combinations that make for an exciting learning experience for their students.

The course can be offered in traditional lecture/laboratory, completely online, and hybrid learning environments by experienced science faculty or those new to teaching climate science. Collegial assistance from AMS staff and other course users is available to new instructors.

If you would like to use the entire AMS Climate Studies course package, which includes the eTextbook, eInvestigations Manual, and access to the RealTime Climate Portal and Faculty websites, your college will need to have an active license on file with the AMS Education Program.
