Experiments covering atmospheric physics, meteorology, and aeerosol physics which will be performed in the lab and partly outdoors.
This course delivers inisghts into various aspects of atmospheric physics. These will be acquired within individual experiments which cover the following topics: Wind and movement of air parcels, evaporation and cooling depending on wind velocity (wind chill), the analysis of particulate matter (aerosol particles), and their influence on the solar radiation that reaches the earth.
Details about the course are available on the web page (cf. link).
Experiment instructions can be found on the Atmospheric physics lab work web page.
Prerequisites / Notice
Three out of four available experiments must be carried out. The experiments are conducted in groups of 2 (or 3). There will be three introduction lectures of 2 hours each in the beginning of the semester to familiarise students with the topics covered and report writing process. The introduction lectures will take place on Mondays March 1, March 15 and March 29 from 10-12 hours in CHN L17.1
Performance assessment information (valid until the course unit is held again)
Repetition only possible after re-enrolling for the course unit.
Additional information on mode of examination
Three out of four experiments are chosen. Each experiment requires a written laboratory report to be completed and handed in for grading. Each report will be graded and worth the equivalence of 2 points, making a total of 6 points for three reports. Reports are to be prepared in teams of usually 2-3 students.
