Anthropogenic climate change is one of the greatest challenges faced by human societies. The reduction of human caused greenhouse gas emission to meet the climate targets of the legally-binding Paris Agreement is key to reach the UN sustainability goals. This lecture will discuss the fundamentals of the climate system including the atmospheric radiation balance, carbon and other biogeochemical cycles, ocean and atmospheric circulation, multiple climate equilibria, climate variations of the last million years and applications of stable isotopes and radionuclides to trace environmental processes.
