120 credits of which 90 credits should be in the main area of studies natural sciences or technology including the course Meteorology, hydrology and environmental measurement techniques 15 credits. English language proficiency that corresponds to English studies at upper secondary (high school) level in Sweden ("English 6").
On completion of the course, the student should be able to
describe meteorological processes on local to global scale
describe climate variations in time and space
apply methods to classify climate
perform caluclations of the processes that govern the atmospheric boundary layer
explain the daily and seasonal variations in the atmospheric boundary layer.
Weather and climate variability in time and space (from day to day variations to longer periods and from micro to global scale). High and low pressure, winds, air masses and fronts. Sea breeze, convection and terrain effects. The structure of the atmosphere closest to the ground and how these atmospheric processes can be described and quantified.
Lectures and calculation excercises
Written exam (5 credits).
If there are special reasons for doing so, an examiner may make an exception from the method of assessment indicated and allow a student to be assessed by another method. An example of special reasons might be a certificate regarding special pedagogical support from the disability coordinator of the university.
