Climate processes and feedbacks

Modprocess

The primary goal of this module is to understand and appreciate the climate system with special focus on the atmosphere. Lectures will cover the basic physical processes of the atmosphere (thermodynamics, aerosol and cloud physics, radiation and dynamics).

Application and analysis of certain aspects will be possible in the accompanying tutorials. Moreover, an overview of numerical methods that are used in climate and weather prediction models with practical applications will be taught.

Objectives

Students will acquire detailed knowledge about the climate system with special focus on the atmosphere. They will quantitavely understand the basic physical processes of the atmosphere (thermodynamics, aerosol and cloud physics, radiation and dynamics) and ocean. They will become able to judge how these properties and processes are influenced by human activity.
