KommentarPrior enrollment in "Boundary Layer Meteorology" (651-4053-05L) is recommended.


KurzbeschreibungClouds cover the majority of Earth's surface and are essential for regulating the radiative energy budget. This course gives an overview of the dynamics controlling boundary layers and clouds and how they may change with climate.
LernzielUnderstanding of the essential physical processes governing boundary layer and cloud dynamics.
InhaltIntroduction to the dynamics of clouds and convection, from a phenomenological overview of cloud and boundary layer morphologies to closure theories for turbulence and convection. Topics include similarity theories for boundary layers; mixed-layer models; moist thermodynamics and stability; stratocumulus and trade-cumulus boundary layers; shallow cumulus convection and deep convection.
