Work at a scientific level with natural science aspects of climate ? Assess likely biophysical consequences of climate ? Identify technological/natural science solutions to climate-related problems ? Communicate knowledge about the natural scientific consequences of climate change at an advanced level.
Acquired theoretical and applied knowledge on how climate and climate of the Earth system will provide an integrated mastering basis for monitoring, managing and forecasting of natural dynamic processes of the Earth climate, lessons learned will be applicable to the analysis and management of processes and phenomena in the atmosphere, hydrosphere and lithosphere caused by climate and weather .
This course examines how various components of the climate system--the atmosphere, ocean, land, and cryosphere--interact in determining its observed state. Covered topics: observations of the climate system; the earth's energy balance; atmospheric radiative transfer; the surface energy balance; the hydrologic cycle; atmospheric circulation and its relation to the energy balance; Introduction to the dynamic movement of spheres – sea currents and waves, winds, global circulation of atmosphere, global energy budget and climate, fundamentals of forming weather conditions, climatic change, role of oceans in global movements.
Classes are held in the form of interactive lectures and other forms of instruction. Lectures presents the theoretical part of the material accompanied by characteristic examples for easy understanding of the material. On other aspects of the teaching work tasks characteristic and deepens the exposed material. In addition to lectures, consultations are held regularly. Part of the material, which seems logical units, may be taken by tests during the teaching process. Exam score is based on: the results of colloquiums and written exam (combined tasks and theory), essay and oral exam.
