Update: "Due to health issues the lecture is now posponed into the winter term 2022/2023. I apologize for the inconvinience this causes for your planning.
If you want to further deepen your knowledge in Environmental Physics join Aquatic Physics, Radiative Transfer in the Earth Atmosphere or Physics and Chemistry of the Ocean.
This lecture covers some fundamentals of climate physics in roughly 11 chapters. We explore the statistical nature of the climate system its underlying covering equations of motion, energy and mass transfer, its sensitivity to external forcing and internal feedbacks. We explore climate variability on different time and space scales and we study the cycles of water and green house gases relevant to the climate system operation. (This lecture requires the MKEP4 lecture on environmental physics as knowledge or otherwise gained knowledge on geophysical fluid dynamics).
The exercises include reviews of recent scientific literature, classical exercises and calculations, and possibly some numerical exercises using python (or an alternative language).
