Name of course leader / leaders:

Dr Ewa Łupikasza



Prerequisites:

Basis of meteorology and climatology



Assumptions and objectives of the course:

To learn physical basis of atmospheric processes and to utilize this knowledge for practical purposes through partial exercises



The form and terms of assessment of the course:

Final test, a credit for partial exercises



Registration for the course / additional notes:

Yes


Content:

The causes of selected atmospheric processes with reference to the lows of physics will be explained in a friendly way (without complicated mathematical formulas). Following problems will be discussed during classes, e.g.: Why does radiation weather accompany a high baric centre and not low baric centre?, How is atmospheric precipitation formed. Driving forces of air flow in the atmosphere. Physics of atmospheric phenomena. This knowledge will be used in a practical way through partial exercises resulting, for example, in skill of evaluation of thunderstorm occurrence probability based on data from measurements.
