AbstractExperiments covering atmospheric physics, meteorology, and aeerosol physics which will be performed in the lab and partly outdoors.
ObjectiveThis 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.
ContentDetails about the course are available on the web page (cf. link).
Lecture notesExperiment instructions can be found on the Atmospheric physics lab work web page.
Prerequisites / NoticeThree 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
