I would love some more excercises, more modeling concepts. A great experience after all!

As far as I know, this course is unique: it is the only one that lets you build your knowledge of modeling climate change by building your own models. I'm giving it 4, not 5, as the forums are very quiet. Prof. Archer has done a great job of providing infrastructure so students can focus on the physics. Assessment is a combination of a grader, to check your code in particular cases, peer review, and quizzes that will be easy if you code works. You can probably bluff your way through the quizzes, but it's easier to get your code working and then read off the answers to the questions. Peer reviews also give you a chance to see how other students have solved the problems.

This contains some very interesting and challenging exercises related to "Global Warming I", which are fun to work on. It contains no real instructions about python, and I think it would be better to at least have some guidance there. However, the course info is at least totally up-front with that information.

Although this course is related to "Global Warming II", it is not correlated with it. It would be a mistake to take them concurrently, since GW-II moves much faster, and is a much shorter course. This was not clear to me when I signed up, and it should be made clear to students at the beginning.

I like Prof. Archer a lot, he seems like a good teacher. However, aside from brief introductory lectures (and the selection of great topics for simulation) he plays a rather small role in the course. The student is pretty much on his own. There is no TA or anyone monitoring Discussion questions. There are some places where the "Model Description" notes are incorrect and badly misleading (notably in Week 4). I pointed this out, with others, in the "Discussion Forum", but we got no response and there was no correction. There are other places where information is unclear, but there is no one to turn to for clarification.

Really good course. Short, content-filled lectures and practical application!
