701-0475-AALAtmospheric Physics Information
Belegung ist NUR erlaubt für MSc Studierende, die diese Lerneinheit als Auflagenfach verfügt haben.

Alle anderen Studierenden (u.a. auch Mobilitätsstudierende, Doktorierende) können diese Lerneinheit NICHT belegen.
3 KP6RU. Lohmann
KurzbeschreibungThis course covers the basics of cloud and precipitation formation (including thermodynamics and aerosol physics) and the relevance of these processes for the climate.
LernzielStudents are able
- to explain the mechanisms of cloud and precipitation formation using knowledge of humidity processes and thermodynamics.
- to recognise the significance for the climate of cloud and precipitation formation.

This lecture is the prerequisite for the MSc lectures cloud microphysics and cloud dynamics.
InhaltMoist processes/thermodynamics; aerosol physics; cloud formation; precipitation processes, radiation, storms; importance of aerosols and clouds for climate

701-1216-00LNumerical Modelling of Weather and Climate Information 4 KP3GC. Schär, U. Lohmann
KurzbeschreibungThe guiding principle of this lecture is that students can understand how weather and climate models are formulated from the governing physical principles and how they are used for climate and weather prediction purposes.
LernzielThe guiding principle of this lecture is that students can understand how weather and climate models are formulated from the governing physical principles and how they are used for climate and weather prediction purposes.
InhaltThe course provides an introduction into the following themes: numerical methods (finite differences and spectral methods); adiabatic formulation of atmospheric models (vertical coordinates, hydrostatic approximation); parameterization of physical processes (e.g. clouds, convection, boundary layer, radiation); atmospheric data assimilation and weather prediction; predictability (chaos-theory, ensemble methods); climate models (coupled atmospheric, oceanic and biogeochemical models); climate prediction.

Hands-on experience with simple models will be acquired in the tutorials.

LiteraturList of literature will be provided.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesPrerequisites: to follow this course, you need some basic background in numerical methods (e.g., "Numerische Methoden in der Umweltphysik", 701-0461-00L)
701-1228-00LCloud Dynamics: Hurricanes Information 4 KP3GU. Lohmann
KurzbeschreibungHurricanes are among the most destructive elements in Atmospheric science. This lecture will discuss the requirements for their formation, longevity, damage potential and their relationship to global warming. It also distinguishes hurricanes from thunderstorms and tornadoes.
LernzielAt the end of this course students will be able to distinguish tropical cyclones from extratropical thunderstorms and cyclones, project how tropical cyclones change in a warmer climate based on their physics and evaluate different tropical cyclone modification ideas.
