End of week 1

So far all the material is very simple, and factual.  The test was pure recall of factual knowledge, and did not test understanding at all. I hope we are introduced to more sophisticated models, with quantitative development soon For instance we were (very briefly, in passing) shown the Stefan-Boltzmann equation but the important dependence on temperature was not even mentioned.

On a positive note, I thought that the diagram showing the various in/out energy balances was very good, as were a few of the earlier graphics.
