Master’s Programme in Atmospheric Sciences is responsible for the course.
Module where the course belongs to:
- ATM300 Advanced Studies in Atmospheric Sciences
- Study Track in Meteorology
- Study Track in Aerosol Physics
- Study Track in Remote Sensing
The course is available to students from other degree programmes.
BSc level physics and mathematics,
Courses in any branch of meteorology help to deepen the understanding.
At the end of the course, students should have
- an overall knowledge of the main components of the atmospheric observing systems
- basic understanding of the observables and measuring principles these systems provide
- basic understanding how these systems are used in operational weather service, and in atmospheric and climate research
- understanding of the applications of satellite remote sensing instruments in meteorology and climate research
The course topics include
(1) Measuring instruments
(2) Physical principles and terminology of remote sensing
(3) Modelling of observations
(4) Quantities measured by remote sensing instruments
(5) the applications of remote sensing techniques in meteorology and climate research
Weekly lectures and exercises sessions.
The exercises will contribute to 30% of the overall grade
The final exam will contribute to 70% of the overall grade.
The course will consist of lectures and exercises. There will be a final exam at the end of the course.
