AbstractThis course introduces the most important physical components of the climate system and their interactions. The mechanisms of anthropogenic climate change are analysed against the background of climate history and variability. Those completing the course will be in a position to identify and explain simple problems in the area of climate systems.
ObjectiveStudents are able
- to describe the most important physical components of the global climate system and sketch their interactions
- to explain the mechanisms of anthropogenic climate change
- to identify and explain simple problems in the area of climate systems

AbstractThe field course offers the opportunity to carry out atmospheric physical and chemical experiments. Students can acquire knowledge in experimental, instrumental, numerical or theoretical aspects of atmospheric sciences.
ObjectiveThe learning target is the successful execution of interdisciplinary field work within the atmospheric sciences. To this end the participants will become acquainted with modern sounding and analysis methods, will collect data and will evaluate these with respect to the state of the atmosphere and the relevant processes of interest. Interdisciplinary team work will be practiced across various scientific fields (physics, chemistry, atmospheric dynamics and transport).
